12 August (Tuesday): First Lecture
This lecture first explores the historical and philosophical background to Edmund Husserl's theory of intentionality in John Stuart Mill's psychologistic logic, Bernard Bolzano's epistemology, Franz Brentano's descriptive psychology, and the rejection thereof by some members (Kasimir Twardowski and Alexius Meinong) of the Brentano school. The lecture then examines Husserl's initial presentation of the structure of a single kind of intentional experience, namely, expressive experience, in the first of the Logical Investigations.

This lecture explores Husserl's account of intentional consciousness as it appears in the Logical Investigations and Ideas I. It focuses, in particular, on the account Husserl gives in the first edition's version of the fifth investigation as well as important changes in that account as developed in lectures during the period 1907–1908, and in the second edition's version of the fifth investigation, and in Ideas I.
