Philosophers contributing new ideas are commonly caught within a received philosophical vocabulary and will often coin new, technical terms. Husserl understood himself as advancing a new theory of intentionality, and he fashioned the new vocabulary of 'esis' and 'ema'. But Husserl's own statements regarding the ema are ambiguous. Hence, it is surprise that controversy has ensued. The articles in this book elucidate and clarify the tion of the ema; the book includes articles which phemelogically describe and analyze the emata of various experiences as well as articles which undertake the 'metaphemelogical' explication of the doctrine of the ema. These two enterprises cant be isolated from one ather. Any analysis of the ema of a particular type of experience will necessarily illustrate, at least by instantiating the general tion of ema. And any metaphemelogical account of the ema itself will guide particular researches into the emata of particular experiences.
