Please respond to the following question in approximately two pages (double spaced). (Needless to say this should be your own original work.)
At the beginning of Ideas §143 (p. 342), Husserl mentions an apparent contradiction between what he has just said (in §142) and what he said earlier (in §138). (Note that that ``p. 286'' in parentheses there refers to the original pages, given in the margin in angle brackets, not to the pages of the English translation.) What is the apparent contradiction, and how does Husserl resolve it?
