This paper explores some consequences of the Husserlian concept of intentionality for a theory of truth. In the first section I present and defend three premises that underlie a phenomenological theory of truth. In the second section I sketch the basics of such theory as presented in Husserl’s Logical Investigations: emptiness/ fulfillment of an intention as primitive; narrow (propositional) and wide (pre-propositional) concept of truth; the connection between truth and evidence. In the conclusion I consider an objection by Theodor Elsenhans and argue that it does not go through because Husserl does not understand evidence as a criterion or truth, but rather as the experience of truth.

Abstract

This paper explores some consequences of the Husserlian concept of intentionality for a theory of truth. In the first section I present and defend three premises that underlie a phenomenological theory of truth. In the second section I sketch the basics of such theory as presented in Husserl’s Logical Investigations: emptiness/ fulfillment of an intention as primitive; narrow (propositional) and wide (pre-propositional) concept of truth; the connection between truth and evidence. In the conclusion I consider an objection by Theodor Elsenhans and argue that it does not go through because Husserl does not understand evidence as a criterion or truth, but rather as the experience of truth.
