The Yearbook on History and Interpretation of Phenomenology 2015

New Generative Aspects in Contemporary Phenomenology

Series:

Edited By Jana Trajtelová

The Yearbook on History and Interpretation of Phenomenology 2015 is dedicated to the question of generativity, and more broadly to the generative aspects of and in contemporary phenomenology. We continue to proceed in Husserlian research as well as to address newly emerging contemporary cultural, political, and ecological phenomena. This invites and welcomes a creative involvement with a generative phenomenological approach, which tries to address such phenomena as the liminality and volatility of experience, interpersonal and intercultural communication, home and alienness, identity and difference, globalization and fundamentalism, migration and interculturalism, and searches for the meaning of authentic sociality, morality or religiosity of human persons.

The Invention of a Paradigm

The Normative Conceptions of the Lifeworld in Habermas

Abstract This article aims at elucidating Habermas’ critique of the phenomenological method while clarifying his own conception of the Lifeworld as a normative, homogenic comprehension of the process of subject constitution and language. In order to do so, a review of the Husserlian understanding of the Lifeworld in the Crisis, as well as the later steps for a provisional, generative conception of Lifeworld will be provided, along with an attempt to recast the debate between the sociological and hermeneutic appropriation of the Lifeworld in Alfred Schutz which motivate Habermas to turn away from a phenomenological perspective. The article closes with elements for a phenomenological critique of Habermas’ concept of the Lifeworld.
