By Søren Kierkegaard

Ostensibly, A Literary Review is an easy observation by way of Soren Kierkegaard at the paintings of a modern novelist. On deeper degrees, besides the fact that, it turns into the existential philosopher's far-reaching critique of his society and age, and its apocalyptic ultimate sections encouraged the vital principles in Martin Heidegger's influential paintings Being and Time. Embraced via many readers as prophetic, A Literary Review and its recommendations stay suitable to our present debates on identification, habit, and social conformity.

Example text

With the intentional analysis of the Other, the radicality is no longer on the side of the ego, but on the side of intersubjectivity; and this latter is not simply an intersubjectivity for the ego-the affirmation by which ego would restore the ego's position as unique foundation-but an absolute intersubjectivity, or if one prefers, a first intersubjectivity. But Hussed himself never went this far: the radicality of the transcendental cogito, as it is estab­ lished in Ideas I, remains the core of all his philosophy.

Thus the inevitable contradictions which issue from the posing of the very sociological prob l e m are li qu ida t ed : the phenomenological tem pt atio n is not to replace the sciences of man, but to focus th e i r probl e ma tic s , thus s e l e cti n g their results and ori e nting their research. We will attempt to retrace this path. VI. Need we emphasize the import ance of phe no menology ? It is a step in "European" thought and has understood itself as such, as Husserl showed in the Crisis.

Of these p ositi ons , Hussed chooses the latter, and the " re a l is m " of essences appears to slide into an i d e alism of the su bj e ct : "The a n a lys is of t he value of l ogical prin cip les leads to r e s earch centered on the s u bj ect " (Formal and Transcendental Logic). It se ems at this p oint that we need o nly choose between an idealism cent e re d around the empirical ego an d a transcen­ dental idealism of a Kantian s o rt ; yet neither can satisfy Husserl. Th e first fails because it re nde rs incomprehensible t h e true propositions that are reduced i n ps ych ol o g i sm to no n p rivil ed ge d states of consciousness, as well as beca u se it l ump s toge the r in the same flux of co ns c ious ne s s that wh ich is v a l uab le and th a t which is not-thus d e s t roy i n g science, and i ts e lf as universal theory.
