The discourse of object is a heresy in the phenomenological analysis. Phenomenology, as far as comprehended in the Kantian term, is a turning away from an object to consciousness or thought of the object. It makes phenomenological analysis epistemologically solipsistic and metaphysically idealistic. The consequence is contrary to the initial goal of Husserl’s phenomenology to make philosophy an objectively justified, rigorous science. This lecture, therefore, is going to rethink that heresy by a metaphysical investigation of a central point of Husserlian phenomenology, i.e. intentionality. The main questions are what the fundamental structure of intentionality is and what the ontological status of object in intentionality is. This lecture, therefore, will be divided into three parts:

1. Introduction to Husserlian intentionality
2. Mind, meaning, and object
3. The ontological status of object
