The work of intuition will be shown to be that of contributing to the intended act, when authentically fulfilled, a genuinely novel element, to which the name ‘fulness’ may be given. ( : Inv. VI, section 17, p. 722)

“…a characteristic moment of presentations alongside of quality and matter, a positive constituent only in the case of intuitive presentations, a privation in the case of signitive.” ( : Investigation VI, section 21, p. 729)

“Fullness must take its place as a new ‘moment’ in an intuitive act alongside of its quality and its matter, a moment specially belonging to the matter which it in some manner completes.” ( : Investigation VI, section 17, p. 723)

An act's epistemic essence consists in “all the content which has relevance for its knowledge-function. The three components of quality, matter, and fullness (or intuitive content) all belong to it.” ( : Investigation VI, section 28, p. 745)

Intuitive fullness itself consists of three distinct moments: its extent or richness, which determines the degree to which an object is intuitively presented; its liveliness, which is the degree to which the intuitive contents resemble the corresponding properties of the object; and its reality-level (Realitätsgehalt), which is determined by the number of its “strictly presentative” – as opposed to signitive or intuitively imaginative – components. (LI VI, 23, 734-5.)
