LAERA, Rodrigo. Behind a Phenomenology of the given. discus.filos [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.28, pp.135-152. ISSN 0124-6127.

The main thesis that I shall hold in this paper can be expressed briefly: the given has a referential correlate, not only by fact but also by law. That it has a referential correlate means that a large part of our beliefs about the world have their foundation in the giving of the world's objects. That this is a question of fact as well as of law means that the given is the source of a large part of our beliefs, not only from a descriptive phenomenology, but also normatively from an epistemological point of view: this must be so if we intend to attribute knowledge about the world and deal with the world in the way that we do.

Keywords : Phenomenology; myth of given; concept; epistemology; object.
