the main methodological step of phenomenological science

As a result of these insights Husserl saw the first step of the development of a scientific philosophy

in the investigation of the correlative structure of intentionality itself and its meaning  for the investigation of the concept of reality.

His motto could be formulated as follows:

Εάν επιθυμουμε να γνωριζουμε κατι για την πραγματικοτητα στην οποια ζουμε, χρειαζεται να κανουμε ενα βημα πισω απο “ΑΥΤΟ ΠΟΥ ΒΛΕΠΟΥΜΕ” στο “ΠΩΣ ΑΥΤΟ ΔΙΝΕΤΑΙ” σε μας.

(If we want to know something about the reality we live in, we need to take a step backwards from the “what we see” to the “how it is given” for us.)

This turn from a naïve directedness towards supposed objective facts to an investigation of the correlative structure between these facts and the subjective constitutive act is the main methodological step of phenomenological science.
