Dummett I 52
Noema/Husserl/Dummett: Husserl generalizes the concept of meaning and transfers it from expressing acts to all acts of consciousness. For this generalized term Husserl uses the term "Noema".
Def Noema 1: The object of the act of consciousness is given by its noema, it is in the nature of noema that it is directed towards an object and this explains the intentionality of the act of consciousness. Every act of consciousness must have a noema.
Dummett I 95
Def Noema 2: new explanation of sensory perception: it is filled with a Noema. (This definition was introduced by Husserl in the "Ideas").
Dummett I 96
Def Noema/Husserl: Generalization of the concept of meaning"; nothing more than the generalization of the idea of meaning to the whole field of acts.
FregeVsHusserl: Husserl's concept of meaning, on the other hand, does not permit any generalization. Thoughts are different from everything else, because they allow the distinction true / false, and their components as well. Everything that serves the same purpose as meaning, i.e. everything that gives off a specific means of determining an object or function, is in turn meaning and forms a component of various thoughts.
Husserl: distinguishes two components of the noema of an act of consciousness:
a) the part that can be expressed by words, "noematic sense", "central core of Noema".
(b) the outer layers that cannot be expressed in such a linguistic way.
The core of the different sensory experiences may be the same, but the different experiences have different layers within the full noema.
Every intended thing as such (as a noematic core) is expressable by "meanings". (Here obviously linguistic meanings). According to this, the noema consists in its innermost part of a sense that is linked to a linguistic expression, but in which consciousness acts without this link. Furthermore, the noema consists of further layers that cannot be expressed linguistically.
Dummett: What is actually the noema of sensual perception? Wrong: to equate the noema with the sensory impressions.
Dummett I 101
For Husserl (...) causality does not seem to be important. His interest in discussing Noema is only in the way the perceiver perceives the object not only as an external object but as something that has certain general characteristics. >Noema/Dummett.
