Subject, philosophy: the subject is, in the most general sense, the originator of actions and creativity as well as bearer of ideas, beliefs, perceptions, feelings and moods. In the tradition of German idealism the subject is opposed to the object. More recently, there has been a shift in the focus of the discussion to questions of access to internal states. See also I, self, subjectivity, object, idealism, actions, action theory.

Edmund Husserl on Subjects - Dictionary of Arguments

Gadamer I 253
Subjects/Husserl/Gadamer: "The radical view of the world is a systematic and pure inner view of the self in the outward subjectivity(1). It is like the unity of a living organism, which can be viewed and dissected from the outside, but can only be understood if one goes back to its hidden roots...".
Subject/Husserl: In this way, the subject's behaviour in the world also has its comprehensibility not in the conscious experiences and their intentionality, but in the anonymous ones of life. Cf. >Subjectivity/Husserl.




1. Husserliana VI, S. 116.
