Description

This volume is a collection of three studies of both retrospective and prospective significance for the author's preoccupation with the philosophical problems arising out of the transcendentalist orientation.

The aim of the present work is to focus on the notion of that paradoxical alliance of unity and difference of the transcendentalist ego and the human subject. To think this notion through in terms of its implications and consequences and to rethink the nature and method of philosophy, its relation to language and to the sciences, is what the author means by the humanization of transcendental philosophy.

The first study addressed the genesis of the problematic of humanization in Husserl's phenomenology of the life-world; the second seeks to understand the presuppositions and the consequences of Heidegger's transformation of phenomenology into fundamental ontology; and the third takes up the themes explored by Husserl and Heidegger as they enter into Merleau-Ponty's thought. In the Epilogue, the author seeks to balance the logo centrism of phenomenology with the biocentrism of a philosophy of life.

This work will prove immensely useful to those interested in environmental philosophy, the philosophy of science and the philosophy of language.
