Full Idea

That human perception is always a 'seeing as' was the cardinal insight of what Husserl called 'phenomenology'.

Gist of Idea

In phenomenology, all perception is 'seeing as'

A Reaction

I presume that 'cardinal insight' means there is no possibility of Husserl being wrong about this. What's happening before you figure out what it is you are looking at?
