Abstract and Keywords

This article explores Levinas’s complex relationship to Husserlian phenomenology as evinced in four periods marking the former’s intellectual development: 1929–1940, with Levinas exploring Husserl’s conception of “intuition”; 1940–1945, the years when Levinas developed a hermeneutic phenomenology of an embodied subject (“hypostasis”); 1961, with his arguments for a phenomenologically unconstitutable alterity; and 1965−1974, with his first elaborate criticism of Husserl’s “absolute subjectivity” as standing-streaming time consciousness (“Intentionality and Sensation”) and his elaboration of a new phenomenology of passive synthesis and the time of allogenic “affectivity.”

Keywords: intentionality, time consciousness, intuition, eidetics, sensibility, constitution, Einfühlung, subjectivity, passive synthesis, intersubjectivity
