The epoche can also be said to be the radical and universal method by which I apprehend myself purely: as Ego, and with my own pure conscious life, in and by which the entire Objective world exists for me and is precisely as it is for me ( : p. 21)

The phenomenological method of transcendental epoche, because it leads back to this realm, is called transcendental phenomenological reduction (Edmund Husserl, Cartesian meditations / Paris lectures: p. 21)

But phenomenological epoche (which the course of our purified Cartesian meditations demands of him who is philosophizing) inhabits its acceptance of the Objective world as existent and thereby excludes this world completely from the field of judgment (Edmund Husserl, Cartesian meditations / Paris lectures: p. 25)

The momentous fact is that I, with my life, remain untouched in my existential status regardless of whether or not the world exists and regardless of what my eventual decision concerning its being ot non-being might be (Edmund Husserl, Cartesian meditations / Paris lectures: p. 25)

Phenomenological epoche lays open (to me, the meditating philosopher) an infinite realm of being go a new kind, as the sphere of a new kind of experience: transcendental experience (Edmund Husserl, Cartesian meditations / Paris lectures: p. 27)
