Example text

25 In these lectures a psychological basis for the foundations of philosophical concepts is elaborated. Brentano begins his logic lectures with a definition of the topic, tentatively defined as both the art of judgment and the art of drawing correct conclusions (EL80/12957ff). Brentano then proceeds to outline the relation of evidence to correct judgments (distinguished here from mere presentations) as well as to present his theory of induction and the role of language in the collection of facts and the formation of theories.

From the first I have been speculating how it could be reformed in the way the natural sciences have been reformed; and I am happy to say that my own ideas conform to yours in more than one point regarding the character of inquiries as well as certain doctrines. After I became acquainted with your writings I 30 From Psychology to Phenomenology began a series of new studies which, though I had given a good deal of serious thought to them, I had not felt ready to publish because of what I felt to be their premature nature.

It is in order to better understand how the immediate ground of knowledge is made evident, and linked to universal covering laws, that Brentano undertakes the study of psychology or the philosophy of mind. Thus, the early writings lead to a framework that is implicitly maintained in Brentano’s thought and present in his early and later writings. The broad philosophical foundation of interests from the Würzburg period (promoted in his metaphysics lectures) is, as was mentioned, closely supplemented by Brentano’s examination of evident versus non-evident kinds of knowledge.
