- knowledge proper is

Two Elements in
Any Knowing:
- according to William Lujipen
- "noesis"
- being-outside-itself-with-reality

- "noema"
- reality-of-the-object-to-which
consciousness is present

All knowing is
it has
an object.

It is due to this that
is a
philosophical encounter.
To him, consciousness is:

1. Never wrapped up in itself; it is openness.

2. An intercourse with reality; it is a self-
giving of the perceived, not through
imagination nor dreaming.

3. not pure passivity, which is usually
illustrated by the mirror and the camera.
There is a
dialectical unity
of noesis and noema.

The knowledge can be defined as, "on the one hand the wonderful mystery of man's openness to reality and, on the other, it is the mystery of reality's being-for-man.

Viewpoint, Profile,Horizon
- what the subject sees
- any part of the object that the
subject sees
*the more one has of viewpoints
and profiles, the more
one knows.
Viewpoint, Profile,Horizon
- unity or background of meanings
I am holding a ballpen, my hands a part of my
body, I am inside a room of the Far Eastern
University which is in the University Belt,
Sampaloc, Manila, Philippines.

Horizon,thus, is a perception of the
whole thing.
An immanent act is defined by Lujipen as..
"an act which originates from the subject which I am and remains
in me as my perfection."
An example is:
I just have finished reading a beautiful
book. I tell you about it. I summarize
it for you. Do you know what the book
is all about? You say yes.But who
is the greater beneficiary of

It is I,
To johann,
"the truth is the Real as disclosed to an
individual who has personally come to grips with it and
succeeded in a measure inarticulating his vision."
Two Kinds of Truth
Robert Johann:
- truth of the object
- truth of the subject
*truth is the object of knowledge.
He says truth is both subjective and objective. Truth comes from reality and
the person.
Sister Mary Aloysius
The theme of "Self-becoming and the Other" is actually the importance to self, or as Marcel puts it, the "mediating presence of the human other."
Sister Mary Aloysius details some precisions on knowing:
1. Openness of the human body
2. Limited openness of the human body
3. Use of point of view
4. A certain "infinity" characterizing human knowing
5. The finitude of human knowing
It is the last precision Paul Ricoeur gives as the reason for
dialogic structure
of human knowing.
Of the four basic human realities, namely,
language, knowing, ethical acting
, we should pick out only
