Generative Problems and Generative Phenomenology
Thinking over Anthony J. Steinbock’s Conception of the Familiar and the Alien by Recourse to a Generative Absolute
Abstract The purpose of this paper is to discuss the possibility, scope and character of generative phenomenology. The first part of the paper is mainly concerned with exposing the problem of the constitution of alienness and why it can only be properly explored by recourse to concepts such as home-world and alien-world, which refer to generativity, i.e., to historical intersubjective bonds. These concepts as well as the notion of generative phenomenology are taken primarily from Anthony Steinbock’s book Home and Beyond: Generative Phenomenology after Husserl. However, Steinbock’s way of understanding generative phenomenology raises several problems and drives phenomenological research into an impasse. For this reason, the paper proposes a different way of understanding it, one that is more consistent with Edmund Husserl’s work and that does more justice to the things themselves. Moreover, since the character of generative phenomenology is to be born out of generative matters, the paper is both an attempt to carry on further some of Anthony Steinbock’s discoveries regarding the particular issue of the constitution of alienness, and an attempt to think over the problem of generative phenomenology and its relation to genetic and static phenomenology.
