Read e-book online Das Problem des ,Ur-Ich, bei Edmund Husserl: Die Frage nach PDF

Der späte Husserl spricht von dem ,Ur-Ich’ als dem Ich, das der transzendentalen Intersubjektivität in einem gewissen Sinne vorangeht. Dies besagt aber nicht, dass es ein solipsistisches Ich wäre, das dem Anderen einseitig voranginge. Der Terminus ,Ur-Ich’ zeigt vielmehr die Ursprünglichkeit einer asymmetrischen und irreversiblen Relation zwischen Ich und Anderem zugespitzt an.

Example text

18 The results of Plato’s and Nietzsche’s determinations of the relation of poetry and philosophy are considerably different. Yet as concerns art, they agree; both neglect the same thing, namely the artwork. The artwork is neither a variable pronouncement of knowledge nor the expression of a view that changes from moment to moment. It stands for itself and is even withdrawn from its creator as soon as it is there. Assuming the poet Socrates interrogated in the Apology had had the opportunity to respond and had refuted the Socratic judgment concerning the poets’ incapacity to elaborate on their work, he could nevertheless not have supplemented his work by means of an additional justifying or clarifying statement.

Artworks are essentially interpretable and in need of interpretation; they are inherently to be understood. Yet intelligibility and the demand of interpretation are not traits restricted to artworks. They are just as valid for juridical, religious, and philosophical texts, for historical events and for complex life-relationships in general. Conversely, the intelligibility of artworks is less idiosyncratic than their perceivability. Whereas, in the process of understanding philosophical texts, perception is nothing more than a necessary condition, it is constitutive for the understanding of artworks.

For an observational philosophy concerned with objectively oriented clarification, the question of art is no simple issue among others. It concerns philosophy itself. Art approaches the observational attitude, and thus philosophy, in a peculiar way. Art awakens observation; it even opens up the attitude essential to philosophy in prephilosophical life. If one has any sense for art at all, observation—even in the extended sense that includes listening and reading—arises as if on its own. An indication of this might be that one tends to dedicate oneself to art outside of one’s working hours.
