The Revelating and Producing Aspects in Phenomenological Philosophy

(Original title: Moment vyjevování a moment produkování ve fenomenologické filosofi)
Filozofia, 49 (1994), 3, 148-145.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Czech

The paper is a contribution to revitalizing two Fink’s texts: The Intentional Analysis and the Problem of Speculative Thought (1952) and Phenomenology and Dialectics, first of all the idea of the „true encounter“ of phenomenological and „speculative“ thoughts. In its first part the tension between the revelating and producing aspects of the phenomenological approach to apriori elements of concsiousness is analysed. The second part deals with the relation between Husserl’s signitive intention and the intuitive apprehension of objects. In the third part Merleau-Ponty’s idea that the intentional threads linking our thinking with reality are made visible by means of their temporal suspension is articulated. Finally, the conception of H. F. Fulda is outlined, in which the critical speculation reveals the preconditions of reflection, what in fact corresponds with Fink's idea of „the true encounter“ of phenomenological and speculative philosophies.
