Problem of Intentionality on Modern Epistemology

Abstract

The author considers Edmund Husserl’s intentionality as a basis of forming ideas that concern the interaction of subject’s consciousness and object cognized by subject. Objective interpretation of subjective feelings is revealed in the flow of phenomenological being by Husserl. This approach considers inter-subject relations in connection with formal and transcendental logic substantiation of cognition. The idea of subject’s dynamic attitude to the reality is rational in classical conceptions. According to non-classical epistemological paradigm, a result of subject’s cognitive activity depends on the means and purposes of the cognition process being used. Modern epistemology says about inseparability of subject and object due to their “principal coordination”. Further research of intentionality is eventually directed to the development of all the complex of non-classical epistemological issues connected with overcoming the borders of subject-object opposition. Nowadays man’s body and consciousness become an integral part both complex socio-cultural and socio-technical systems included in the permanent real or virtual exchange of ideas based on a sign system. It results in the relevant interpretation of information due to synchronization of consciousness flows by communication participants. The author concludes modern epistemology is being understood as a transition from the postulating mind, based on a stable content of ideologies and cognitive imperatives prevailing in the society, to the interpreting mind relying on plurality and openness of the cognition system. Subject is eventually responsible for the choice of some range of opportunities from a number of possible alternatives that turns into a basis of subject’s further process of cognition.
