Husserl's phenomenology has usually been criticized for its Cartesian, fundamentalistic, idealistic and solipsistic nature. at the present time, this common interpretation needs to be considered as being outmoded, because it offers yet a really partial and constrained photograph of Husserl's considering. the continued ebook of Husserl's examine manuscripts has disclosed analyses that have made it essential to revise and regulate a couple of general readings.
This anthology records the new improvement in Husserl study. It comprises contributions from a couple of younger phenomenologists, who've all defended their dissertation on Husserl within the nineties, and it provides a brand new kind of interpretation which emphasizes the scale of facticity, passivity, alterity and ethics in Husserl's thinking.

Example text

His aim is to open the way for an alternative interpretation of imagination: imaging consciousness as well as dream consciousness are both captive consciousnesses45 , whereas pure reflexion alone remains totally spontaneous. Although Sartre changes the emphasis he places upon imagination, he remains stricken in a naIve duality between activity and passivity. We are therefore right to wonder whether Sartre's interpretation (of the imagination as a captive consciousness) is the true phenomenological counterpart to his otherwise relevant critique of Husserl's one-sided opposition between passive perception and active imagination.

See Sartre, 1943. 12. See Merleau-Ponty, 1945. 13. 277). In this regard the creative work of G. Deleuze is also an excellent reference. 14. See Levinas, 1966. 15. 93: "[... 63-64: "Plasticite de l'ontogenese", Varela, Thompson, Rosch, 1989, and van der Linden, Hupet, 1994, which deals with the possibility of a "functional plasticity" in the process of altering. 16. About time, alterity and affection, see Held, 1966; Derrida, 1964; Alter, revue de phenomenologie, n02, "Temporalite et affection", 1994, Liminaire et N.

Moreover, if imagination is understood as the power of neutralizing its object as being, it may also be used to refer to a pure activity deprived of any ontic weight. From a strictly methodological standpoint, both these modes 44 NATALIE DEPRAZ of appearance of imagination (variation, neutralization) emphasize its purely active role. No phenomenologist has pushed the contrast between perception and imagination as far as Sartre. Indeed, he deliberately exaggerated the distinction in order to carry through his critique of static phenomenology.
