Abstract: In the fifth Logical Investigation, Husserl argues against the possibility of the pure I as a function that synthetizes the intentional contents. His argumentation is explicitly directed against Neo-Kantian conception of the pure ego elaborated by Paul Natorp in his Einleitung in die Psychologie nach kritischer Methode from 1888. The present text analyzes the polemic over the status of the I by exploring the metaphysical and logical assumptions involved in it. Finally, it is trying to sketch out some motivations that led Husserl to reevaluate the status of the pure I in his Ideen zu einer reine Phänomenologie und phänomenologischen Philosophie.
