But as Zahavi – following Sartre – has shown, this self-awareness cannot be conceived on the model of an intentional act directed upon the ego engaged in intentional acts. To block the fatal regress, self-awareness must be an original nonobjectifying function of intentional consciousness itself. Whether this undermines Husserl’s doctrine of a “pure” ego is a matter of some dispute (see Zahavi 1999). Finally, in his genetic phenomenology Husserl introduces a third conception of the transcendental ego, namely, as the “substrate of habitualities” (Husserl 1969a: 66).
On the other hand, Husserl also describes the noema as the transcendent thing itself in its manner of being given. , the perceived as perceived” (Husserl 1982: 214). Because the noema includes perceptual moments – not just “this cup” but “this-cup-as-perceived-from-here-in-this-light” – it is difﬁcult to see it as an abstract entity, and on this basis Robert Sokolowski (Sokolowski 1974), followed by the deﬁnitive work of John Drummond (Drummond 1990), disputes the distinction between noema and transcendent object.
