Chapter 6, Note 43

As the latter writes: “It has to be recognized that [...] the synthetic unity of apperception is also a theoretical version of experience.” Marcel Merleau-Ponty, Phenomenology of Perception (London and New York: Routledge, 1958), 280. For observations about stereoscopic vision, see page 380. For the meaning of “apperception” in Husserl, see D. J. Dwyer, “Husserl’s appropriation of the psychological concepts of apperception and attention,” Husserl Studies 23 (2007), 83–118. “In the sixth Logical Investigation, Husserl thematizes the surplus (Überschuß) of the perceptual intention whereby the intending goes beyond the partial givenness of a perceptual object to the object as a whole.”
