That term is Evidenz, and the more frequent rendering is "selfevidence. " The trouble with this expression is that it usually carries a heavily logical connotation. That is, the dominant technical usage of the term implies the possession of a logical and semantic character on the part of an asserted proposition such that that proposition is immediately convincing by a mere moment of reflection on it in its logical and semantic character. For Husserl, however—and Fink follows Husserl totally in the way he too uses the term—Evidenz is the ultimate condition of ascertainment precisely in the experiential condition of being the object for a subject. Evidenz is the "evidentness" of selfmanifestation to an experiential cognitive agent, that is, it is the culminating correlational term of a process of intentional action on the part of subjectivity by which the item in question comes to be given in its native self, and not merely in a mediating anticipation, indication, or representation. Accordingly, inelegant as it may be, the rendering chosen here for Evidenz is "evidentness," and for evident simply "evident. " Page lxvii The present translation is not a perfect representation of the original texts. Nor is it a substitute. It is meant rather as a mediator, as an aid to enable someone to begin approaching the originals with a comprehension that can grow the closer one comes to them precisely by way of this transfer into English. The question of the translatability of philosophical thinking as expressed in language is itself a philosophical issue, which, once again, in the very discussion carried on in the Sixth Meditation regarding "transcendental language," is one of the themes of the work, at least by close implication. Several organizations are responsible for the support that was indispensable to the completion of the present translation. First of all, the National Endowment for the Humanities made it financially possible for me to take leave from my home university to complete the translation. For the actual expenses of the stay in Freiburg in Breisgau during which I did that work and began a study of the background to the text, particularly regarding Eugen Fink as both a thinker and a person, I am indebted to the generosity of the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, as well as to the University of Kentucky Research Committee. The major part of the cost of producing the first computerprocessed typescript was also covered by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, with again the University of Kentucky Research Committee contributing, particularly in the use of equipment. Finally, I wish to thank the Pädagogische Hochschule Freiburg, where the EugenFinkArchiv is located, for having so graciously made space and facilities available during the period of my work in Freiburg. Several years intervened between the work of translation and its publication, during which time my study of the context and content of these texts has been immeasurably deepened by extensive study of the Fink Nachlass in Freiburg.
