L'ipséité et la personne selon Husserl

Abstract : In this paper, the author considers Husserl's contributions to the theme of selfhood by examining the way in which Husserl overcomes a purely formal philosophical approach to personal identity. The phenomenology of Husserl renders visible the transcendental genesis of an individual in his or her unique individuating temporality. But it remains to be seen how Husserl, whose philosophy overcomes both a forgetting of the flesh and a forgetting of historicity, relates the transcendental "I" to history, and to the specificity of time and place. The author examines the themes of habit and historicity spanning from Husserl's early to his later works, and ultimately highlights the importance of the notion of vocation for thinking through the autoconstitution of transcendental egohood as indissociable from concrete situations.
