Consider logic. As we saw, logical theory of meaning led Husserlinto the theory of intentionality, the heart of phenomenology. On oneaccount, phenomenology explicates the intentional or semantic force ofideal meanings, and propositional meanings are central to logicaltheory. But logical structure is expressed in language, either ordinarylanguage or symbolic languages like those of predicate logic ormathematics or computer systems. It remains an important issue ofdebate where and whether language shapes specific forms of experience(thought, perception, emotion) and their content or meaning. So thereis an important (if disputed) relation between phenomenology andlogico-linguistic theory, especially philosophical logic and philosophyof language (as opposed to mathematical logic per se).

Some of these analytic philosophers of mind harkback to William James and Franz Brentano at the origins of modernpsychology, and some look to empirical research in today’s cognitiveneuroscience. Some researchers have begun to combine phenomenologicalissues with issues of neuroscience and behavioral studies andmathematical modeling. Such studies will extend the methods oftraditional phenomenology as the Zeitgeist moves on. Weaddress philosophy of mind below.
