As for Brentano, so also for Husserl, mental acts may exhibit a peculiar many-layered or stratified structure. Thus: The subject-member of a categorical asserting is an underlying act, a positing of a subject, on which is built the positing of a predicate, its attribution or denial. Just so the antecedent of a hypothetical assertion constitutes itself in a clearly demarcated part-act, on which is built the conditioned positing of the consequent . . On such a composite act (whose members may in turn themselves be composite) a new act may be built, e.

109). This passage, together with the similar passages quoted in § 2 above, points to the existence of an a priori oideT in the domain of perceptual contents. '' Such relationships may be illustrated, in simple cases, as follows:'^ The validity of these abstract decompositions, which were originally discovered by a analyses (cf. above all the work of E. Hering),'^ 45 was overwhelmingly established, with amendments for specific variant cases, by a vast amount of empirical work undertaken in the early, seminal decades of experimental psychology- It was demonstrated, from a number of distinct perspectives, that each of the constituent moments that had been distinguished reflected an axis of independent variation in the nature of (a distinct dimension in the geometry oP*) perceptual contents of each spedfictype.

They enter, in particular, in his account of the 'mutual 50 belongingness' of signitive acts of empty intention and the intuitively filled acts in which they find their fulfilment (LU VI, § 8), in which, that is to say, 'the intentional essence of the act of intuition gets more or less perfectly fitted into the semantic essence of the act of expression' (loc. '®^ We shall return again to this logic of fitting below. Every act, as a matter of a priori necessity, has a moment of fulfilment of some specific degree.
