Abstract

63 Identities in Manifolds: A Husserlian Pattern of Thought* ROBERT SOKOLOWSKI The Catholic University of America There are three formal structures which run through Husserl's work: the contrast between parts and wholes, the contrast between absence and presence or empty and filled intentions, and the contrast between identity and manifold. We will explore the third of these, to show the force it exercises in Husserl's thought and to show how awareness of the structure can simplify Husserl's descriptions. § 1. THE MATERIAL THING AS AN IDENTITY IN MANIFOLDS It is a commonplace in phenomenology that a material thing is the identity within a continuous flow of profiles. But this mentions only one of the manifolds in which a thing appears. Many others must be listed if we are to be precise. *This essay is part of one of the chapters in my book, Husserlian Meditations: How Speech Makes Things Manifest, which is to be published by Northwestern University Press. It was delivered as an address at the meeting of the Husserl Circle at the University of Waterloo, 5 May 1973. References to Husserl's works are given in the text according to the following abbreviations: Ideas I stands for
