Abstract [en]

This anthology takes its starting point in the conviction that a phenomenologyof pregnancy could play an important role in contemporary thought. Stating this is also an acknowledgment that it doesn’t play such a role—yet. The aim of this anthology is to contribute to making philosophical reflectionon pregnancy a greater part of the discussions to come.

Abstract [en]

The fundamental and irreducible experience of carrying a child and bringing forth new life from one’s own body is in this anthology subjected to careful analyses that specifically, though not exclusively, draw on female experiences. In this way the crucial role of a phenomenology of pregnancy for contemporary thought is investigated. Exploring the phenomenon of pregnancy not just as a biological process, but also as a problem of lived bodily meaning, the contributions investigate a wide array of experiences that engage the limits of human life, subjectivity, intersubjectivity, and ethics, but also opens important methodological perspectives on the relation transcendental phenomenology and empirical research.

Abstract [en]

This introductory article is structured around the following themes: it begins with a brief overview of some important works that have paved the way for the present discussion (Simone de Beauvoir, Hannah Arendt, Adrienne Rich and Iris Marion Young). This is followed by a critique of the concept of “experience” and the philosophies based on it (such as phenomenology), that was first presented by feminist thinkers Joan Scott and Judith Butler in the 1980’s. The question this debate poses to the discussions in this book is whether focusing on experience is still a philosophically viable option. After that, the views of Edmund Husserl – often described as “the father of phenomenology” – are presented on the particular themes of motherhood and pregnancy, as it is often overlooked that he had anything to say on the topic. Then follows a short outline of the structure of the experience of pregnancy, and also the modest suggestion that pregnancy should be seen not only as “split subjectivity” (Kristeva, Young and others) but also as a specific mode of phenomenological “in-between.” Thereafter the question is taken up whether pregnancy as a philosophical topic might also affect the methodological core of phenomenology. The article ends with a speculative outlook towards certain themes that have developed as a consequence of thinking pregnancy philosophically.

Abstract [en]

Roland Persson’s new exhibition, The Phenomenon of Materializing a Dream, is his most ambitious endeavour so far, with clear links to his previous work in silicone and yet displaying literally new dimensions. While Persson previously has shown objects, whether single, compounds or in series (flowers, mushrooms etc.), he now exhibits five full-sized rooms that you are invited to walk around in: floors, walls, a ceiling (in one of the rooms) plus a wealth of objects that he has fitted into them, all in silicone. As is often the case with Persson’s work, it is not a mere reproduction of things already known but the creation of another world, bearing a strange resemblance to things as we know them but distorted (in colour, in form) in different ways. The result is a shock on the senses, as one is virtually engulfed in this strange world.

Abstract [en]

In this text there are two things I would like to show: Firstly, that the so-called "timelessness" of the Freudian unconscious can be elucidated through an interpretation of the concept of Nachträglichkeit as it functions in Freud's texts, and showing thereby that there is indeed a temporality specific to the workings of the unconscious. Freud's analysis of early psychic trauma related to sexual phenomena pointed to a serious complication for all believers in the immediate transparency of consciousness. For the "wound" itself was constituted over time, and the possibility of coming to understand the trauma was again only possible after the event had passed. The Nachträglichkeit involved in the psychoanalytical understanding of sexual trauma thus hinges on a threefold temporal process at work in subjective life. Secondly, I wish to show that Husserl, in his analyses of time and intersubjectivity, delivered the materials with which a phenomenological clarification of the Freudian idea of Nachträglichkeit can be given in its most formal outlines. Since Nachträglichkeit is essentially tied to the structure of repression (and thus the very constitution of the unconscious), what I am suggesting is a prolegomenon to a phenomenological clarification of Freudian repression.

Abstract [en]

This text argues that Husserl’s late philosophy of temporal and bodily subjectivity can only be understood by means of the interplay between different reductions. For various reasons, this decisive methodological aspect has been largely overlooked by most interpreters. As a consequence, the co-originality of the constitution of space and time, which first enables a comprehensive grasp of the originary processes in the living streaming present, has remained virtually unknown. This also means that the proper understanding of egology and intersubjectivity has been obfuscated. It is only by bringing out the bodily and temporal foundations of the lebendige Gegenwart as presented in the C-manuscripts that Husserl’s investigations of constitutive intersubjectivity in other texts can ultimately be clarified. Notably this calls for a renewed understanding of the role of Vergegenwärtigung, showing that the community of streams, not located in my ego but precisely in a manifold of streaming living presents, are united by means of an “intersubjective association”. The problem of the individualization of the “intersubjective streaming being” that characterizes the monadic totality here finds its solution, by means of a ceaselessly ongoing and self-altering duplicity that accounts for my pre-identity at the deepest genetic level.
