Pp. 64, 66. 11. , p. 66. 12. I intentionally left out intentionality from my sketch of the essential properties of self-consciousness, for it is an essential trait not of self-consciousness but of knowledge. It is, moreover, not a necessary trait of consciousness, for some consciousness (moods, sensations, feelings) is nonintentional.

The claim, again, is simply that any instance of noematic unification, insofar as it is to be relevant to apprehension of objects, requires that operations of the understanding be effected on the basis of a body of material within a single mental act, where the very unification of that material into that act is not itself wholly a function of understanding.
