Faith and doubt: The noematic dimensions of belief in Husserl

Jodie Doreen McNeilly

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


In examining Husserl's noesis-noema correlate, which characterizes his intentionality thesis of 1913, this article argues toward presentation as a sufficient mode of givenness in accounting for religious phenomena by demonstrating how an intentional analysis of faith and doubt is possible if one s regard is directed toward the noetic moment of believing and its corresponding noema: the believed as believed. This will be shown by directly engaging with the eidetic laws of Husserl's series of belief modalities.
