“Cognition in all of its manifestations is a psychic act; it is the cognition of a
cognizing subject. The objects cognized stand over and against the
cognition. But how can we be certain of the correspondence between
cognition and the object cognized? How can knowledge transcend itself
and reach its object reliably”
— Husserl, Lecture I, p. 15; “Train of Thought,” p. 1.
