Conversation with Husserl and Fink, 4/12/31
Husserl suggested that I review the Méditations Cartésiennes for some American periodical. I said that I had thought of writing an exposition of the Fifth Meditation, as the narrower subject would have the advantage of allowing greater detail. Even so it seemed to me, I said, that such points as the nature of the Paarung 〈pairing〉 which is at the basis of our experience of other minds should be elucidated in such an account, and such an elucidation would involve an exposition of the general nature of passive association.
