Oltre il trascendentale, il trascendentale. In dialogo con E. Husserl, J. Patoĉka, M. Henry, J.-L. Marion e C. Romano
In this text I intend to deal with the question whether phenomenology is to be uniquely developed as a transcendental philosophy. From a historical standpoint, a number of post-Husserlian phenomenologists aimed at overcoming Husserl's phenomenology through an overthrow of the transcendental subjectivity. For instance, this is the case for Patôcka's a-subjective phenomenology, Henry's phenomenology of life, Marion's phenomenology of givenness, and Romano's phenomenology of the event. Once synthetically sketched their views, I discuss their projects of a non-transcendental (or over-transcendental) phenomenology. My core thesis is that, beyond all transformations and relocations, the transcendental always returns as the impassable framework for any phenomenological endeavour.
