Conversation with Husserl, 28/12/31
Husserl said he has been working on the carrying out of a universal voluntarism. He objects to regarding such classifications of acts as Brentano's as representing true fundamental distinctions. Every act as carried out by the ego is a decision, a Bejahung,〈affirmation〉 and there is furthermore a volitional aspect in the background phenomena of the mind. There is a sort of Hintergrundsentscheidung 〈background decision〉, which is not a full ego-decision.
