In the late phase of his reflections, following the new possibilities opened by the genetic method, Edmund Husserl addresses the factuality of the body-consciousness relationship. Investigating elusive phenomena, such as sleep and dream, birth and death, fainting and awaking, the unconscious, drive and instincts, Husserl questions the limits of consciousness, its inner continuity that holds together the passivity of life and the subject’s higher ethical performances.
The Research Summer School in Genetic Phenomenology aims to offer an in-depth analysis of Husserl’s research manuscripts collected in volume XLII of the Husserliana while opening an interdisciplinary dialogue with psychoanalysis, psychology, sociology, and anthropology.
International experts will discuss thematically relevant issues on the basis of textual analysis in lectures and seminars. In the afternoon, international scholars and advanced PhD students will present their own research topics during “text-laboratories” and continue the discussion of selected manuscripts from Hua XLII.
The summer school will also include a section on psychoanalysis headed by Prof. Dr. med. Heinz Weiß.
