Consciousness as a Relationship

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
In the article I analyze the theory of consciousness understood as a asymmetric binary relation. This concept was formulated by Paul Natorp in Allgemeine Psychologie nach kritischer Methode and by Heinrich Rickert in Der Gegenstand der in Erkenntnis. According to this theory, consciousness is neither the act nor the action or the condition, but a clear relationship of subject to the object. Consciousness in this perspective is the relation of asymmetric and differential. This means that the subject cannot be recognized as an object and vice versa. Only the object can be conscious by the subject.Key words NATORP, CONSCIOUSNESS, RELATION.
