‘I am’ in the possibility-of-being towards certain comportments (cogitationes) as ways of being with innerworldly entities

“The first assertion, then, is: ‘I am’ – specifically in the sense of ‘I-am-in-a-world.’ As being in this way, ‘I am’ in the possibility-of-being towards certain comportments (cogitationes) as ways of being with innerworldly entities. But Descartes, on the contrary, says cogitationes are just-there and that, along with them, the ego is likewise just-there as a worldless res cogitans.”
