In this he says "Phenomenology ascertains and studies the kinds of elements 
universally present in the phenomenon; meaning by the phenomenon, whatever is 
present at any time to the mind in any way." This 'phenomenology' should not 
the same as Husserl sense 'phenomenology', else the hierarchy indicated would 
have a link between mathematics and 'Phenomenology'. 

 What would be a relative characterization of Peirce's concept of 
phenomenology? (... relative a version of noema)
