|Recognition, philosophy: the ability of a conscious subject to identify a pattern that has already been received by this subject. This ability is no knowledge-how and no quale, since there is no particular way of experience that all the cases of recognition have in common. However, the ability to recognize certain features can be learned, but this is actually an identification and no recognition. See also memory, qualia, knowledge-how, knowledge, computation, identification, individuation, similarity, equality._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Thomas Aquinas on Recognition - Dictionary of Arguments
Holz I 33
Recognition/Aquinas: "For everything that is ordered to a goal, the rule of its governing and order must be taken from the goal." ((s) The thought to be thought determines the thought).
HolzVsAquinas: thus, the method of recognition and the order of the concepts must be determined by the object. This is naively realistic!
According to Descartes, that is to say, if everything is doubtful except thinking itself, the method and order of the concepts must be determined from the point of view of thinking.
Thus, it is possible that the world is posited only by the form of our thinking (Husserl).
Husserl: "The natural ground of being is secondary in its self-validity and presupposes the transcendental."_____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
