  • “Spiritual Acoustics”: On Being In Common (Kierkegaard,
           Husserl, Henry)

    • Authors: Kevin Hart
      Abstract: Kierkegaard steadily maintains, against Lessing, that Jesus’s contemporaries had no advantage as regards faith merely because they had personal experience of him. It is a view proposed both by Johannes Climacus and Anti-Climacus, as well as over Kierkegaard’s own signature; it is indirectly communicated and then directly communicated, and so the importance of becoming a true contemporary of Jesus can hardly be underestimated in the authorship, including the later journals. When Michel Henry considers this motif in his Phénoménologie matérielle (1990) he says that it is one feature of what Kierkegaard calls “’the strange acoustics of the spiritual world’ [l’étrange acoustique du monde spirituel].” These acoustics are not those we learn about in physics: “the laws of being in common are not in fact those belonging to things and the laws of perception,” and this claim gives Henry an opportunity to continue a long standing argument with Husserl. For “here” and “there” in Henry’s account of inter-subjectivity have no relation to the intersubjectivity that is explored in the fifth of the Cartesian Meditations. Indeed, Henry goes on to say, “This spiritual acoustics, which defies the laws of perception, defines our concrete relation to the other”; that is, it gives the “how” of the relation rather than the “what” or “why.”

  • Religion as the Ethical Form of Self-Regulation: Reflections after Michel
           Henry

    • Authors: Jean Leclercq
      Abstract: Among thinkers and philosophers who have hazarded a non-theological and nonrationalistic approach to Christianity, Michel Henry’s published work—along with what remains unpublished and all that it harbours—imposes itself as a site of subtle expertise and audacious creativity, especially as it pertains to the relation of reason and faith. However, it is in fact unclear whether the reception of this work has really been accomplished, especially in theological and religious studies settings. Nor is it clear whether an openness to the Judeo-Christian Scriptures has been reasonably considered in philosophical settings, an openness nevertheless characteristic of Michel Henry, following many thinkers, especially of the German Idealist tradition. This undoubtedly accounts for all the ambiguity of the present and paradoxical position this thinker occupies in the complex and diverse plane of twentieth-century French philosophy.

  • Phenomenological Models of Inter-Subjectivity: The Position of Michel
           Henry

    • Authors: Stefano Bancalari
      Abstract: In this paper, I would like to provide some of the elements necessary for a
      comprehension of Michel Henry’s position within the context of the
      phenomenological debate on inter-subjectivity. This apparently straightforward
      task is, in reality, extremely difficult.

  • Phenomenality or Revelation: Michel Henry’s Approach to Christianity

    • Authors: Karl Hefty
      Abstract: With uncommon humility, Michel Henry offered a new beginning to philosophy,
      a new and adequate point of departure that changes everything. Over the course of
      a philosophical career spanning the second half of the twentieth century, he
      proposed a controversial definition of phenomenality, where “phenomenality”
      means, or seems to mean, “Revelation” in the full theological sense of the term:
      the self-revelation of God. This definition of phenomenality strikes some as
      problematic not merely because it seems to bring phenomenology and theology
      together in a way that many philosophers and theologians find surprising or
      undesirable, nor merely because it purports to show in all phenomenological rigor
      that revelation opens a way of access to God under the name of Life (a proposition
      which would remain uncontroversial if its demonstration were not elaborated in
      phenomenological terms, as a factum). Henry’s redefinition of phenomenality proposes further that humanity itself is at stake, for this same revelation or phenomenality antecedes each vivant, each “living being,” and bestows concrete character upon all finite life. Revelation or phenomenality, in Michel Henry’s sense of the term, arrives before and without reference to the world or its temporal horizon. Moreover, and more radically, the phenomenality of the world itself depends upon the prior work of revelation, and presupposes it constantly.

  • The Ethics of Affectivity and the Problem of Personhood: An Overview

    • Authors: Frédéric Seyler
      Abstract: Michel Henry’s critique of barbarism,1 understood as a flight from life, almost
      immediately raises the question of how life’s tendency to negate itself is then to be
      overcome. Undoubtedly, such a question refers to ethics. Although Henry not only
      provides an analysis of civilization and its malaise, but also targets the level of the
      individual through the concept of despair inspired by Kierkegaard, there is no
      systematic treatment of ethics to be found in his phenomenology of life.2,3 In light
      of the diagnosis of barbarism, it is therefore necessary to investigate what ethics
      would be contained in, or follow from, Henry’s phenomenology. And if the
      essence of life is to be found in immanent affectivity, the questions thus become:
      is there an “ethics of affectivity” and, if so, which are its main aspects? The purpose
      of this article is to give an overview of ethics from the standpoint of Henry’s radical
      phenomenology and to discuss some of the main problems it implies. The
      opposition of barbarism and culture is essential in order to understand Henry’s
      distinction between ethos (or “first ethics”) and normative ethics, but it is only
      intelligible if one refers to immanent affectivity as the key-concept of his
      phenomenology. As we will see, it is the lack of recognition of immanent life
      as fundamental phenomenality that makes barbarism possible, a recognition that is
      therefore central to phenomenology of life as ethics and to the concept of “second
      birth.”  However, since phenomenology is, as theory, tied to intentionality, how can it become indicative of that which escapes intentionality, and how can it provide a truth-criterion for propositions that refer to affectivity as invisible? As the access to the transcendental becomes both an ethical and a theoretical problem, it is necessary to investigate how a radicalised reduction can be performed with regard to three interrelated aspects that are central to human life and therefore to ethics: community, personhood, and action. The analysis of action in particular shows Henry’s reductive move at work, while also facing the problem of articulating transcendence with immanence. His radicalised concept of personhood reveals the same features as those contained in his approach to action: they both combine affectivity and intentionality, but limit the reality of personhood and action to their affective core.

  • Beneath Time and Reflection: The Shadow of Husserl in Michel Henry’s
           Non-Intentional Phenomenology

    • Authors: Claudia Serban
      Abstract: Ever since The Essence of Manifestation (1963), Michel Henry’s phenomenology
      developed in a close dialogue with Husserl. This confrontation led Henry, in 1995,
      to formulate the project of a “non-intentional phenomenology,” which would find
      its point of departure in a quite simple question: is intentionality—the key feature
      of consciousness and of lived experience as such in Husserl’s perspective—able to
      ground itself? Does it provide its own foundation? If not, in what could its
      possibility-condition be found? Henry’s gesture invites us not to a purely
      descriptive attitude toward such intentional acts, but rather to an inquiry into their
      origin and their inner ground, to submit them to a transcendental interrogation in
      order to discover “what ultimately makes them possible."

  • Phenomenality and Finitude: Michel Henry’s Theory of Immanence

    • Authors: Roberto Formisano
      Abstract: In the following essay, I will examine the connection between phenomenality and
      finitude, a problem developed by Michel Henry in The Essence of Manifestation
      in the context of a close dialogue with Heidegger and Kant on the theme of time
      and self-affection. Henry’s consideration of Kant’s transcendental philosophy, and
      of his conception of time as self-affection, appears in § 24 of The Essence of
      Manifestation, in the context of what Henry himself terms the “problématique” of
      The Essence of Manifestation as such, the “critique of ontological monism.” It does so, then, in the context of Henry’s “interpretation of the essence of phenomenality… within the fundamental ontological presuppositions of monism,” in which Henry situates, and develops, the decisive problem of the receptivity of transcendence. The conclusive moment of this critique is provided by Henry’s ontological interpretation of Kant, through a point-by-point “contrelecture” of Heidegger’s own Kant und das Problem der Metaphysik. This constitutes only a final moment (or even a “simple repetition”) of a long critical path, that was always directed to the “essential interconnection of being and human finitude,” the “coappartenance” that, in the wake of Heidegger, contemporary phenomenological ontology would establish between the essence of phenomenality and finitude, on the basis of the transcendence of Dasein. The determination of the structure of the latter, which is the true task of Henry’s ‘ontological interpretation’ of Kant, is initiated already in the first part of L’essence de la manifestation, which thus will be the focus of my analysis herein. My intention is to reconstitute the methodological and theoretical foundations on which rest, ultimately, the phänomenologische Aufweisung—in the Heideggerian sense of a “démonstration phénoménologique” and a “mise en lumière”—of the internal incoherence of the ontological presuppositions of monism, as constitutes the pars destruens of this foundational work of Henry’s phenomenology.

  • Michel Henry between Krisis and Critique: Philosophy in the Age of
           Barbarism

    • Authors: Carla Canullo
      Abstract: Michel Henry was, fundamentally, neither a thinker of the Krisis, nor a philosopher
      of “critical” thought. In his Barbarism, however, and his two volumes on Marx,
      Henry criticized forcefully the culture of his time and place. Culture, Henry
      suggests, has brought about an over-turning (rovesciamento) that has obscured life,
      its inner essence. Henry’s phenomenology, which opposes itself explicitly to this
      over-turning, strives to grasp, and to re-turn (controrovesciare) thought again, to
      that which, in his view, has been concealed. This doubled turn—an over-turning
      of an over-turning, advanced in order to restore what modern thought has
      subtracted, i.e., life—represents the most fundamental, genuinely, ‘critical’ aspect
      of Henry’s philosophy. The question here, then, is to see whether and how Henry’s
      phenomenological proposal can regain (ritrovato) what has been forgotten and
      concealed, and how this subtracted (rimosso) element can be returned (ridonato)
      again to thought. If this can be clarified, the genuinely critical character of Henry’s
      thought can be constituted, as capable both of protesting against its time and of
      proposing elements for its renewal. In this essay, I will introduce certain
      characteristic themes of Barbarism, in order to establish a connection between
      barbarism and its critique. This connection will be established through a
      clarification of two such radical reversals in our age; those of culture, on one hand,
      and psychoanalysis on the other. In order to investigate this connection, and in
      order to engage the general theme of a reversal (rovescio), I will take a detour, in
      order to begin with what I will define as a forgotten overturning (rovescio).

  • Expérience d’autrui et érotisme chez Henry et Sartre

    • Authors: Grégori Jean
      Abstract: Afin d’introduire notre propos, nous souhaiterons d’abord insister sur deux des
      avancées herméneutiques fondamentales qu’ont à nos yeux rendues possibles le
      travail mené depuis 2010 au Fonds Michel Henry de l’université de Louvain-la-
      Neuve. La première concerne la question de l’expérience d’autrui. Sur la foi des
      textes publiés en effet, la littérature secondaire avait pris l’habitude de considérer
      qu’elle n’avait été posée par Henry que tardivement—une première fois au début
      des années 1990, avec les deux articles que lui consacre Phénoménologie
      matérielle, prolongés par la rédaction immédiatement abandonné, en 1991, d’un
      livre qu’il projetait d’intituler “Intersubjectivité pathétique;” une seconde fois lors
      du changement de paradigme qui allait le conduire à sa “philosophie du
      christianisme,” et dans lequel il se trouve repensé dans un tout autre cadre
      conceptuel que celui de la phénoménologie historique. Or une première
      exploration des archives henryennes, dont nous avons eu le privilège de publier les
      résultats dans le deuxième numéro de la Revue Internationale Michel Henry,
      montre que le problème de l’expérience d’autrui hanta Henry tout du long de sa
      vie et, surtout, dès le début de son itinéraire philosophique—au point d’ailleurs,
      comme en témoigne son dossier CNRS, qu’il envisagea de lui consacrer sa thèse
      secondaire jusqu’en 1950. La seconde avancée herméneutique permise par ce
      travail archivistique et qui nous retiendra ici concerne la place qu’occupe dans la
      pensée henryenne la figure de Sartre: si, dans Philosophie et phénoménologie du
      corps et dans L’essence de la manifestation, il est loin de faire figure
      d’interlocuteur privilégié, et si, sur la foi d’une déclaration lapidaire de Michel
      Henry lui-même avouant dans un entretien tardif le tenir pour un “auteur
      secondaire,” la littérature critique a eu tendance à en négliger l’importance dans la genèse de la “philosophie de la vie,” force est au contraire de constater l’omniprésence de Sartre dans l’immense chantier des notes préparatoires aux deux premières oeuvres henryennes. Et plus précisément, il est désormais établi que la thèse d’une “transcendance de l’ego”—du mien comme de celui d’autrui – circonscrit alors pour Henry la position philosophique fondamentale contre laquelle il cherche à exprimer ses propres intuitions fondatrices: non seulement celle, explicitement développée dans L’essence de la manifestation, d’un ego immanent seul capable, à ses yeux, de redonner un sens phénoménologique à l’idée d’intériorité, mais aussi celle, qui nous retiendra ici tout particulièrement, d’une expérience immanente de la subjectivité immanente de l’autre—expérience que Henry nomme alors, dans une formule qui restera un hapax, une “expérience métaphysique d’autrui.”

      Abstract: My question is whether a phenomenology of community is possible. Phenomenology
      starts from experience, in the Husserlian sense of Erlebnis. Now, can a
      community be experienced, and not empirically but rather phenomenologically
      understood? What is a community from the viewpoint of experience? In this text,
      I will respond to, and elaborate on, this question. More specifically, I will attempt
      to understand community from the perspective of life by drawing on the work of
      Michel Henry.

  • Life Turned Against Itself: Is There a Theory of the Passions in Michel
           Henry?

    • Authors: Jean-Sébastien Hardy
      Abstract: Michel Henry is known to be the contemporary thinker who has given the most privileged status and the deepest philosophical significance to affectivity. His whole work—from his interpretation of Biran’s ontology of subjectivity to his reading of Marx’s philosophy of human reality and his trilogy on the phenomenology of Christianity—can be read as a prolonged clarification of the foundational role of affectivity in life’s manifestation to the living. This holds true both at an epistemological level (since all knowledge implies the immediate knowledge of one’s own life) and at a phenomenological level (since the world and its objects can only appear through life’s incarnate givenness), as well as at an anthropological level (since the community of men is primarily an affective community). Ultimately, prima philosophia itself must be expressed as a philosophy of affectivity.

  • L’intériorité pathique des mots: langage, littérature et
           auto-affection chez Michel Henry

    • Authors: Cesare Del Mastro
      Abstract: Si la phénoménologie de Michel Henry renvoie l’humain à son ancrage dans la vie
      auto-affective, comment aborder dans un tel cadre philosophique deux des traits
      propres au vivant humain, à savoir le langage et la création littéraire? Peut-on
      décrire l’exposition aux mots à partir d’un langage de la vie antérieur à toute
      configuration linguistique et narrative, à partir d’une “Parole de la vie” qui fonde
      et qui accroît la capacité de “se sentir” de la vie subjective radicale? Comment
      aborder le langage dans son intériorité pathique? Pour le dire autrement, peut-on
      renvoyer toute médiation visible par le langage à un espace d’immédiateté invisible
      où aucun signe ne se livre à la connaissance et où, cependant, les mots sont cette
      résonance de la vie en moi, cette reconduction par eux à mon pouvoir et à mon
      désir de m’éprouver moi-même comme cette subjectivité qui parle et qui raconte?

  • Introduction: The Philosophy of Michel Henry

    • Authors: Roberto Formisano, Garth W. Green
      Abstract: While Michel Henry is, in the words of Jean Leclercq, “l’un des plus grands
      penseurs français du XXème siècle,” his philosophical contributions remained,
      throughout his career, anomalous or eccentric, in the etymological sense of that
      term. Still today, a perduring hermeneutic approach to his philosophy remains
      itself, in a certain and salient sense, extraneous or external. Such an approach
      characterized Jean Lacroix’s (positive, or affirmative) proclamation, in 1966, of
      Henry as “le nouveau Bergson.” It continues today when Dominique Janicaud
      interprets Henry (negatively, or critically) in light of a “tournant théologique,” as
      a principal proponent of the “theologism of phenomenology.”

  • Ontological Destruction of the Kantian Critique of the Paralogism of
           Rational Psychology

    • Authors: Michel Henry
      Abstract: In Kant, remarkably, and for the first time perhaps in the history of philosophy, the
      problem of the Ego receives an ontological signification. The critique of the
      paralogisms of rational psychology concerns, explicitly, this fundamental problem
      of the being of the ego. Kant’s examination of this problem constitutes an essential
      moment of the history of modern philosophy. This examination results finally in
      the complete failure (échec total) to determine such a being, a failure that Kant
      attempts to pass off ultimately as a metaphysical impossibility. This is affirmed
      constantly through the labyrinthine analysis of the Transcendental Dialectic: what
      emerges from its difficulties, and obscurities, is that the being of the Ego can be
      neither determined (circonscrit), nor posited, metaphysically. The conclusion is
      unquestionably the following: the ego cogito does not contain in itself any sum, at
      least if, by the latter, one intends, as does rational psychology, the metaphysical
      and, in some way, absolute being of the ‘I’ (l’Ego).

  • The Reduction and ‘The Fourth Principle’

    • Authors: Jean-Luc Marion
      Abstract: Among the many difficulties, or even paradoxes, that phenomenology has imposed
      upon us by positing itself as a doctrine, or at least as a radical foundation for
      philosophy, one must first and foremost consider the operation typically referred
      to as the reduction. The reasons for detecting difficulties therein are many, but they
      take on even greater significance since Husserl proclaimed the reduction to be
      fundamental to any philosophy that wished to establish itself as a phenomenology.
      The history of phenomenology, then, would appear not only as the history of all
      the difficulties encountered in the reduction, but principally as the history of
      Husserl’s own self-elucidation of his entire project. This brings us to the point of
      reformulating Ricoeur’s claim—that phenomenology is the sum of
      misinterpretations of Husserl’s doctrine—with this new contention: that
      phenomenology consists in the sum of discussions and disagreements about the
      doctrine and practice of the reduction.

  • Suffering and Ipseity in Michel Henry: The Problem of the Ego’s
           Transcendental Identity

    • Authors: Jean-François Lavigne
      Abstract: The double expansion that Husserl’s phenomenology imposed on subjective
      experience posed, among other difficulties, a new and particularly difficult
      problem for Husserl; that of the trans-temporal identity of the transcendental
      subject, the “ego.” This problem involves also, and still more fundamentally, the
      question of the ontological status of the ego. Beginning with his descriptivepsychological
      understanding of consciousness and its intentional acts in the 1901
      Logical Investigations, Husserl had first identified the subjective ego with the
      empirical person, and considered it sufficient to determine the flow of acts
      experienced by consciousness as a “bundle” (ein Bündel) of subjective phenomena
      devoid of altogether devoid of any internal principle of unity, except a mere formal
      synthesis.

  • The Significance of Self-Affection: Michel Henry’s Critique of Kant

    • Authors: Garth W. Green
      Abstract: Michel Henry’s “Destruction ontologique” does not interpret itself. In the following interpretive essay, I will attempt to articulate its basic structure, to address its principal engagements, and, on this basis, to interpret its defining themes and positions. In the course of this attempt, I will comment also on the importance of this work in the context of Henry’s œuvre, and contemporary scholarship thereupon. One need not accept every assertion, or agree with every position, in this article to recognize its importance. This importance is both greater, and different, than the reader may expect.

  • Fichte, Henry, and the Problem of Manifestation

    • Authors: Gaetano Rametta
      Abstract: The interpretation of Fichte plays a crucial role in the argumentation of Michel Henry’s seminal work, The Essence of Manifestation. 1 Indeed, it accompanies one of the most important passages of the entire volume, which establishes the definition of philosophical monism as the dominant tradition of Western thought.2 In order to understand what is at stake in this interpretation it will thus be necessary to place it in the wider context of Henry’s argumentation. Once we have illustrated the principal characteristics of philosophical monism, we will be able to analyze the role that Fichte played in its development in greater detail. Finally, I will evaluate Henry’s interpretation in terms of its relevance to the fundamental characteristics of Fichte’s transcendental philosophy.

  • Review of S.J. McGrath and Joseph Carew (eds.), Rethinking German Idealism
           (London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2016).

    • Authors: James Scott Johnston
      Abstract: These are exciting times for the philosophy and historiography of German Idealism. While in the first half of the 20th century, scholars have been content to provide stand-alone works on single thinkers (itself a very important task), we see since Dieter Henrich’s Hegel im Kontext a trend that involves the setting of thinkers side by side in a constructive dialogue. While not every thinker gets an equal share of the time (or is placed on equal footing), the trend is towards more equitable exegeses. Rethinking German Idealism is no exception. While the editors did not set out to overtly juxtapose various thinkers and programs of German Idealism in the text, they did set out to create a dialogue amongst them, and the upshot of this dialogue serves nicely as an example of such juxtaposition.
