To be sure, a psychology which pretends to treat the Cogito as a class of empirical facts which it calls mental facts or facts of consciousness and which it proclaims to be verifiable by methods of observation and induction used in natural sciences, a psychology which degrades the central experiences of subjectivity, such as intentionality, attention, motivation, etc., to the level of a physics of the mind, is in effect incapable of shedding light on my bodily existence in any profound sense. It has only a diagnostic value.
