problem of Evidenz

But, the problems then just limp along behind. /What is Evidenz/? All
the previously raised questions seem to press on towards this question.
Supposing we have come to an understanding of that correlation of
consciousness and object that concerns every, even dream-25 ing,
hallucinatory, erring consciousness, and then we ask how we can 155 come
by the existence of any object in itself at all, then we face the
/problem of Evidenz/, or, what is the same thing, the /problem of
givenness/. The question <is>: How do we know that any object at all
exists in reality? And the question is: Where and when is an object
truly 30 given to us, or how do we know that an object is given, and
what does it mean for an object to be given to us? These questions, I
say, are plainly most intimately connected. They are not solvable one
without the other. Indeed, in the end, they are answered or go unanswered one
with the other.

Edmund Husserl, INTRODUCTION TO LOGIC AND THEORY OF KNOWLEDGE, 152-153

/Evidenz is a word for the fact that/, as
noeticians affirm and prove, /there is a difference between acts that
not only think that something is thus and thus, but are fully certain
and aware, in the manner of perspicacious seeing, of this being and being/

10 /thus/.
