Remarks on the phenomenolo­gy of image consciousness

According to Husserl, image consciousness has a structure that distingui­s­hes it not only from positional acts (such as perception and memory) but also from all non-po­si­tional acts. In regard to positionality, image con­sci­ousness has a complex structure. Unlike straight­forward perception, image consciousness does not posit the material picture on the wall as such, but is rather preoccupied with the theme. On the other hand, the theme is not posited either – we are aware of it precisely as pictured. According to Husserl, this is due to a third element: consciousness of the apparent image (figure, shape, contrasts etc.) that depicts the theme of the picture. According to Husserl, the non-objective presence of this mediating element sharply distinguishes image consciousness from imagination.
