Testing the Limit: Derrida, Henry, Levinas, and the by François-David Sebbah,Stephen Barker

By François-David Sebbah,Stephen Barker

In exploring the character of extra relative to a phenomenology of the restrict, Testing the restrict claims that phenomenology itself is an exploration of extra. What does it suggest that "the self" is "given"? should still we see it as originary; or fairly, in what method is the self engendered from textual practices that transgress—or hover round and for this reason within—the threshold of phenomenologial discourse? this is often the 1st ebook to incorporate Michel Henry in a triangulation with Derrida and Levinas and the 1st to critique Levinas at the foundation of his interpolation of philosophy and faith. Sebbah claims that the textual origins of phenomenology ascertain, of their temporal rhythms, the character of the subjectivation on which they concentration. He situates those issues in the broader photograph of the kingdom of up to date French phenomenology (chiefly the legacy of Merleau-Ponty), so that it will exhibit that those 3 thinkers proportion a definite "family resemblance," the id of which unearths anything in regards to the lines of different phenomenological households. it truly is by way of trying out the restrict in the context of conventional phenomenological matters in regards to the visual appeal of subjectivity and ipseity that Derrida, Henry, and Levinas considerably think again phenomenology and that French phenomenology assumes its current form.

Das Problem des ,Ur-Ich' bei Edmund Husserl: Die Frage nach by Shigeru Taguchi

By Shigeru Taguchi

Der späte Husserl spricht von dem "Ur-Ich" als dem Ich, das der transzendentalen Intersubjektivität in einem gewissen Sinne vorangeht. Dies besagt aber nicht, dass es ein solipsistisches Ich wäre. Der Terminus "Ur-Ich" zeigt vielmehr die Ursprünglichkeit einer asymmetrischen und irreversiblen Relation zwischen Ich und Anderem zugespitzt an. Die vorliegende Untersuchung befragt das Ich, das sich selbst in einzigartiger Weise gegeben ist.
