Consciência do tempo e temporalidade da consciência: Husserl perante Meinong e Brentano
In the first part of this paper we try to show how the discussion of Meinong's distinction between distributed and undistributed objects was crucial for Husserl's thinking about the phenomenology of time consciousness. The criticism of Meinong's thesis that the representation of a distributed object (temporal object) is an undistributed act is presented as the central point for the development of Husserl's own thesis about the perception as a continuum of continua and about consciousness as an unitary flux of temporal phases. ln a second part, we move to Brentano's theory about original associations in the constitution of the "presence-time". Brentano's position about the function of phantasy as the origin of our representation of time is refused by Husserl and, as a result, the structural composition of time consciousness in phases of primal-impression, fresh memory (later "retention") and immediate expectation (later "protention") appears as the core form to the intuition of the present and the constitution of time. ln a last section, we follow Husserl's revision of his own analysis of fresh memory in order to understand his final position about retention as a primitive form of Vergegenwärtigung.
