On the Origins of the Non-Subjective Phenomenology of Jan Patočka

(Original title: K počiatkom asubjektívnej fenomenológie Jana Patočku)
Filozofia, 65 (2010), 2, 139-149.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The paper offers an examination of Patočka’s attempt to clear a difficulty of Husserl´s transcendental phenomenology and to develop a non-subjective conception of phenomenology. The author gives a thorough analysis of two fundamental wri- tings, compiled by Patočka in German in 1970 – 1971. The aim of the paper is to follow Patočka´s way of gradually developing his idea in various articles, mainly in his lecture Plato and Europe.
