Embodiment and Subjectivity in Ludwig Landgrebe’s Interpretation of Husserl
AbstractAt first glance, it seems that in his published works, Husserl addresses theappearing of phenomena out of a counterintuitive conviction that may be called asubjectivist conviction: namely, that appearing depends on an “act” ofconsciousness. Why is this counterintuitive? It is because what appears to usalways seems to be already given—otherwise, it simply would not appear. Itappears because it is and is given. In his “genetic” phenomenology, Husserlhimself admits to the pregivenness of what appears. Even there, however, thefollowing question remains for him: how are such phenomena constituted forthematic consciousness in the lived experience of their being and givenness, andhow are being and givenness accomplished in concrete terms?
