Dalla soggettività alla soggezione: Levinas e la riduzione trascendentale

Riflettendo con Hidegger, Levinas, Michel Henry

In the context of the PRAGMATEIA philosophical workshop, and more specifically of the history of modern and contemporary philosophical thought, the Faculty of Philosophy is continuing - on the basis of last year's comparison with Kant, Hegel and Husserl - a cycle of three lectures focusing on the decisive theme of "subjectivity" as the principle from which every relationship with reality arises and in which it returns; in which is rooted the possibility or impossibility of the knowledge of truth and free action; inquiring consciousness that with a "critical attitude" welcomes multiple views of the world, on condition that they are subjected to the analytical method of evidence, so that the knowledge can be founded as science.

 

Through three specialists, respectively from the thought of Heidegger, Levinas and Michel Henry, subjectivity is problematised in itself and shown in its structural 'criticality' following the unravelling of three different phenomenological orientations.

 

The second lesson (11 April), held by Prof. Stefano Bancalari (Sapienza University of Rome), is entitled Dalla soggettività alla soggezione: Levinas e la riduzione trascendentale.

In spite of his critical position with respect to Husserlian phenomenology, Levinas never proposes a simple overcoming or abandonment of transcendental subjectivity: the specifics of his theoretical proposal consist rather in a radical rethinking of transcendental reduction that implies the transformation of subjectivity into subjection.
