From the interior Flap:
This formidable paintings goals to shed new gentle at the family members among Husserlian phenomenology and the present-day efforts towards a systematic concept of cognition—with its advanced constitution of disciplines, degrees of clarification, and conflicting hypotheses.
The book’s fundamental objective isn't really to offer a brand new exegesis of Husserl’s writings, even though it doesn't brush off the significance of such interpretive and demanding paintings. particularly, the participants check the level to which the type of phenomenological research Husserl initiated favors the development of a systematic concept of cognition, really in contributing to precise modern theories both by way of complementing or via wondering them. What essentially emerges is that Husserlian phenomenology can't turn into instrumental in constructing cognitive technology with no present process a considerable transformation. consequently, the significant situation of this ebook isn't just the development of latest theories of cognition but additionally the reorientation of Husserlian phenomenology.

22 G. 19 Of course the difficulty of this theoretical approach, which intertwines philosophy and theology together in search of a living truth as opposed to a worldly truth, lies in the fact that philosophy proceeds exactly through reasoning, while “Christianity is a religion and, as such, legitimizes itself through its very existence”20; therefore the Revelation does not disclose Himself to thought; indeed, it is only when thought gives way to the gift of faith, that man is open to God’s self revelation.

Only phenomenological analysis has brought to light the transcendental body, the Leib, as a condition of being able to exercise the fundamental powers of our body, or namely to touch what is external to us, including our same objective bodies, Körper. e. the body which constitutes, and what is felt through it, the constituted body: a continuously reversible relationship, depending on whether the right hand touches the left, or vice versa. The French scholar then comes to extend the relationship between touching and being touched to the whole world, a gesture, which to Henry does not resolve the ambiguity underlying sensitivity.

P. 4. 49 Ivi, p. 128. Towards a Phenomenology of Life and the Invisible… 27 gives credence to the existence of an independent and external reality- the world, which the body belongs to. It is, therefore, the dimension of the perceptive worldly body which takes us back to a transcendental body, that is to the condition of every experience and perception of the sensed worldly body, the Leib.
