DOCUMENTS

Michel Henry, /Destruction ontologique de la critique kantienne du paralogisme de la psychologie rationnelle/
Michel Henry, /Lettre à Bernard Forthomme/

*Abstract*: Cher Monsieur, Votre lettre, dont l’adresse était incomplete, m’est parvenue tardivement. Pardonnez-moi donc de vous répondre seulement aujourd’hui…

I. RADICAL PHENOMENOLOGY AND FIRST PHILOSOPHY

Julia Scheidegger, /Michel Henrys Lebensphänomenologie als Hermeneutikkritik/

José Ruiz Fernández, /Logos and Immanence in Michel Henry’s Phenomenology/
Jeffrey Hanson, /Michel Henry’s Critique of the Limits of Intuition/
Benoît Ghislain Kanabus, /Vie absolue et Archi-Soi: Naissance de la proto-relationnalité/
Antoine Vidalin, /L’acte humain dans la phénoménologie de la vie/

*Abstract*: The question of action or praxis has not been treated in particular by Michel Henry in his works. However, this subject is present at each step of his reflexion. This article makes a synthesis on this matter, taking into account all of his works, especially the last books on Christianity (which, in our view, fulfill the phenomenology of life). Having determined the immanent dialectic of action (from the gift of the power in the generation and the in-carnation of the First Living), we can understand, following Michel Henry, the ethics of Life as the Commandment of Love. From such a perspective, the sin and the salvation can be reconnected to the native relation of the living with the Life.

II. CONFRONTATIONS

Christoph Moonen, /Touching from a Distance: In Search of the Self in Henry and Kierkegaard/

Camille Riquier, /Henry, Bergson et la phénoménologie matérielle/

Raphaël Gély, /L’imaginaire et l’affectivité originaire de la perception: Une lecture henrienne du débat entre Sartre et Merleau-Ponty/
Niall Keane, /Why Henry’s Critique of Heidegger Remains Problematic: Appearing and Speaking in Heidegger and Henry/

Rolf Kühn, /„Wiederholung“ als Habitualität und Potentialität: Michel Henry und Gilles Deleuze/

Sébastien Laoureux, /Material phenomenology to the test of Deconstruction: Michel Henry and Derrida/

*Abstract*: What would be the result of reading Derrida from the standpoint of material phenomenology? And what would be the result of reading material phenomenology on the basis of the requirements of Derridean thought? These are the questions that this article endeavours to tackle by focusing on the two philosophers’ readings of Husserl’s Lectures on the Consciousness of Internal Time. At first strangely similar, these two readings soon display marked differences. Whereas Derrida, in his approach, is keen to demonstrate that there is never any pure presence, Michel Henry brings out an “Archi-presence” which he attempts to safeguard from any deconstruction. So perhaps material phenomenology functions as “quasi-deconstruction”, having the same relationship with Derridean thought as “negative theology” has with deconstruction.

III. AESTHETICS AND RELIGIOUS PHILOSOPHY

Jad Hatem, /L’art comme phénoménologie de la subjectivité absolue: Henry et Balzac/

Ruud Welten, /What do we hear when we hear music? A radical phenomenology of music/

Jean Reaidy, /La connaissance absolue et l’essence de la vérité chez Maître Eckhart et Michel Henry/

Jean Leclercq, /La provenance de la chair: Le souci henryen de la contingence/

Ovidiu-Sorin Podar, /La vie en tant que Vie: Lecture théologique d’une tautologie, entre Michel Henry et saint Maxime le Confesseur/

*Abstract*: The phenomenological tautology of life in Michel Henry’s works shows us that the radical concept of self-affection, in its own immanence, cannot be described in another way, either by metaphor or analogy for example, but only by that immediate relation like adequacy on itself: “life as life”. The reduplication of the fundamental concept in Henry’s last “theological” turn introduced a new Transcendence: the Self-Affection of the Absolute Life, the Christian God as Revelation. In this way, we can diversify the tautology of life trying to read it using Saint Maximus the Confessor’s theology: “Life as Life” like the Absolute phenomenological Life of Trinity in Unity; “life as Life” for the creation of the human living by the Living God; “life as life” for the existence of the man, ek-sisting in a world affected by the original transgression; “Life as life” for the Incarnation of the Logos of God; “life as Life-2″ for the rebirth of the human living into Christ and His Mystical Body.

IV. HUMAN SCIENCES AND POLITICS

Marc Maesschalck & Benoît Ghislain Kanabus, /Pour un point de vue d’immanence en sciences humaines/

Frédéric Seyler, /Michel Henry et la critique du politique/

Michael Staudigl, /Die Hypostase des Politischen und das Prinzip des Faschismus: Zur Kritik des Politischen nach Michel Henry/

Eric Faÿ, /Organisation virtuelle, travail réel: Une critique henryenne de l’organisation virtuelle du travail humain/

*Abstract*: This article presents a phenomenological perspective on the “virtual organisation” where people are obliged to work at a distance and where contact with others is limited to that of an electronic network. Drawing on Husserl, we see that when the “as-if” presence is contrived in such a way, the organisation obstructs the life of consciousness. Furthermore, relying on Michel Henry’s writings, we explain how removing the parameter of “flesh” as a factor structuring encounters, this organizational form profoundly restricts the dynamism of the acting, subjective life.

VARIA

Jean-Yves Lacoste, /L’objet: constitution et réduction/

Fausto Fraisopi, /Expérience et horizon chez Husserl: Contextualité et synthèse à partir du concept de « représentation vide »/

Christian Ferencz-Flatz, /The Neutrality of Images and Husserlian Aesthetics/

Dimitri Ginev, /Interpretative Erschlossenheit der endlichen Existenz und mathematische Unendlichkeit. //Zu Oskar Beckers Phänomenologie des Transfiniten/

*Abstract*: The paper attempts to elucidate and evaluate Oskar Becker’s search for a complementarity between the paradigm of constitutional analysis put forward by Heidegger’s hermeneutic phenomenology and constructivism as a meta-mathematical position suggesting criteria for existence of the mathematical objects. At stake is the issue of the possibility of an existential analytic of “the mathematical”. In this regard, a special attention is paid to the temporality of “mathematical existence”. The paper invites new forms of a dialogue between phenomenology and philosophy of mathematics.
