Vérité et présence en phénoménologie


Abstract: This study looks at Emmanuel Levinas’s early reading of Husserl’s theory of intuition as set out in Ideen I. Levinas identifies the relation between truth and presence as the fundamental issue at the heart of Husserlian phenomenology. His investigations into the problem of the self-presence of consciousness lead Levinas to emphasise the distinction between lived experience and representation and, ultimately, to conceive selfhood as grounded in an originally passive affectivity.
