Husserl and the Allsubjektivität’s point of view

Filippo Nobili


To appreciate the significance of phenomenological idealism as traditionally unprecedented, I shall provide a clarification of the too often overlooked notion of Allsubjektivität. Husserl’s effort to resolve classical philosophical oppositions – such as those between naive objectivism and psychological subjectivism, theory and practice, etc. – results in the idea of transcendental (all) subjectivity’s self-explication (Selbstauslegung). I will argue that, on closer inspection, Husserl’s idealism does not consist in a metaphysical worldview but, rather, it coincides with the accomplishment of a concrete task, according to which true being emerges as a practical idea of cooperative determination. Indeed, the procedure of Auslegung reveals how the tension among the world, the I and the others coalesces and how a higher degree of self-awareness (Selbstbesinnung) amounts to a correlative boost in human self-responsibility (Selbstverantwortung) for reason’s achievements.
