According to this assumption, these phenomena are the only evident things to us. See also representation, phenomena, perception, certainty, evidence.|

Phenomenology/WittgensteinVsHusserl: is always about possibility, i.e. about the sense, not about truth/Falsehood: E.g. Red cannot be green at the same time.
Brentano (Husserl’s teacher) precursor of phenomenology: experience of the object is simultaneously related to itself - reflective attitude.
"living world": pre-predicative - Science: only descriptive - consciousness: Brentano has never admitted the inscrutability of consciousness - he always insists on the clarity of thought.
Accepts "improper beings" with Meinong ("entia rationis").
