Abstract: The purpose of the article is to investigate, whether the acts relating to the emotional sphere of experience in the objectifying acts of cognition are funded, or have the unique structure and are independent of these acts. On this perspective we find the beginning of reasonings in Husserl's phenomenology.
Revolutionism of ideas of Husserl consisted not simply in opening of intentional structure of consciousness, but in the unique phenomenological approach which has allowed it to describe a way of judgment of what is something (life a subject) in relation to force and limits of subjectivity. Saying that emotional acts are funded in more primary the intentional acts, Husserl means that emotions depend on objectifying acts because characteristics of the last that "the non-objectifying act", presented in a sense, meant something outside itself are necessary for them. Certain emotional experiences, such as considered here (trust), or in a broader sense, such which treat the sphere interpersonal and a reality of the personality, shouldn't be understood as based in the objectifying acts. Though it doesn't contradict to the basic structure of "funding" offered by Husserl, it contradicts to his early understanding of emotions.

Keywords: Husserl, objectifying act, intentional structure, phenomenological approach, noem, noesis, emotional sphere, inter-subjectivity, Levinas, Annette Bayer
