Neatly define static phenomenology in contrast: “Static phenomenology begins from species of stable objects, both real objects (for example, natural things) and ideal objects (for example, mathematical propositions), and proceeds both noetically and noematically to investigate the complexes of immanent experiences in which these species of objects attain teleologically to givenness. In the course of such an investigation, and within the ‘phenomenological reduction,’ these objects are regarded purely as the objective correlates of modes of consciousness.

It gets its whole sense, universal and specific, and its acceptance as existing, exclusively from such cogitationes.

For Nietzsche there is no certainty other than the certainty of one’s own will to decide. The attempts of philosophy or religion to give meaning to life are, for Nietzsche, entirely empty, futile expressions emerging from fear in the face of an indifferent universe. ” 1 See Chapter 11 of Friedrich Nietzsche, The Anti-Christ, trans.
