    Ricoeur on Violence and Religion: Or, Violence Gives Rise to Thought.Jason W. Alvis - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:211-233.
    This essay demonstrates Ricoeur’s explication of the various roles religion can play especially in regards to acts of collective violence, and also how his conceptions take us beyond the traditional dichotomies of religion as necessarily violent, or necessarily peaceful. It focuses on three essays where his most formidable reflections on religion and violence can be found: “Religion and Symbolic Violence”, “Power and Violence”, and “State and Violence”. First, the essay hermeneutically describes the intricate relationship between violence and religion within these (...)

    Could the Focus on Transcendental Violence Be Violent?Michael Barber - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:235-250.
    Eddo Evink criticizes Emmanuel Levinas’s supposed view that all acts of intentionality and rationality commit transcendental violence against their objects, including the Other. If this is so, Levinas undermines the possibility of his own philosophy. Evink further argues: that there are non-violent forms of intentionality and so intentionality is only potentially violent; that some non-violent counter-pole is needed to define violence; that there are contradictions in Levinas’s notion of violence; that Levinas, like empiricists, aspires to a metaphysical absolute untainted by (...)

    Phenomenological Reflections on the Intertwining of Violence, Place and Memory: The Memorials of the Ungraspable.Irene Breuer - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:153-174.
    Acts of violence develop in relation to place and involve the violation of its very limits. Every significant place is a scene of history, its limits embrace presence and sense. As such, it is the life-worldly home of memory. In this article, I will retrieve the bodily affective dimension of the phenomenon of place memory in instances of public commemoration. Drawing on different philosophical horizons like those of mainly Heidegger, Husserl, Merleau-Ponty, Derrida, Adorno, Ricoeur and Bataille, I’ll contrast their different (...)

    La Dissidence Et L’Unité des Trois Mouvements de L’Existence Chez Jan Patočka.Mathieu Cochereau - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:327-347.
    Jan Patočka is usually connected with Czech dissidence, a political movement which stood up against the communist government. We want to defend the hypothesis that the notion of dissidence is not originally a political one but, above all, a phenomenological one. Dissidence is a movement of distancing which implies a rootedness, and this movement of distancing is peculiar to human beings. Patočka calls “movement of human existence” this paradoxical rootedness which is an extramundane and mundane position. Thus, we have to (...)

    L’Experience de la Violence Subie: Acces aux Phenomenes.Pascal Delhom - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:37-58.
    There are three possible ways of access to phenomena of suffered violence: the first is the experience of those who have suffered violence themselves; the second is the experience of eyewitnesses; the third, which is the most frequent one, is an indirect access through the testimony of people belonging to the first two categories. Each way of access has advantages but also serious difficulties, both in terms of the objectivity of the experience and of the possibility to express it in (...)

    Briser le Silence: Le Déploiement de la Langue Comme Traduction du Silence En Son Chez Martin Heidegger.Mădălina Guzun - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:263-287.
    The aim of the present article is to offer a new interpretation of Heidegger’s account of the unfolding of language by analyzing the notion of Geläut der Stille, “sounding gathering of silence.” Taking as a starting point the experience of silence described by Stefan George in his poem “The Word,” the article presents the opposition between silence and the sounding words, showing that the latter coincide with the language we speak. The passage from silence to the spoken language belongs to (...)

    The Most Difficult Task: On the Idea of an Impure, Pure Non-Violence.Leonard Lawlor - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:251-260.
    This article attempts to elaborate on the Derridean idea of transcendental violence and his idea of “violence against violence.” It does this by examining the structure of the gift as Derrida presents it in Given Time. The article lays out in detail all of the conditions for the gift Derrida presents across Given Time. More precisely, it examines Derrida’s analysis of the giving of counterfeit money. The conclusion it draws is that the giving of counterfeit money comes closest to the (...)

    „Herrscht“ Krieg ‒ Seit Je Her, Gegenwartig Und Auf Immer?: „Polemologische“ Uberlegungen Zur Frage, Ob Wir Ihm Ausgesetzt Oder (Auch) Ausgeliefert Sind.Burkhard Liebsch - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:103-127.
    This essay critically examines theories of war which imply an affirmation of the unavoidable rule of war. In contrast to such theories, the author advocates a notion of war that presupposes processes of becoming enemies, which eventually enthrone war as “dominating” power. From this position result a number of desiderata of research which call for a revision of actual theories of war.

    Trust and Violence.James Mensch - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:59-73.
    Jean Améry’s memoir of his imprisonment and torture by the Nazis links the loss of “trust in the world” to the violence he experienced. The loss of trust makes him feel homeless. He can no longer find a place in the intersubjective world, the world for everyone. What is this “trust in the world”? How does violence destroy it? In this article, I use Améry’s remarks as guide for understanding the relation of violence, trust, and homelessness. Trust, I argue, is (...)

    Hermeneutic Violence and Interpretive Conflict: Heidegger Vs. Cassirer on Kant.Mihai Ometiță - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:175-192.
    The paper aims to rectify the reception of Heidegger’s so-called “hermeneutic violence,” by addressing the under-investigated issue of its actual target and rationale. Since the publication of Kant and the Problem of Metaphysics, some of Heidegger’s contemporary readers, such as Cassirer, as well as more recent commentators, accused Heidegger of doing violence to Kant’s and other philosophers’ texts. I show how the rationale of Heidegger’s self-acknowledged violence becomes tenable in light of his personal notes on his Kant book, and of (...)

    ≪ L’Ebranlement du Monde Bien Connu ≫: Lectures Croisees de Patočka Et Maldiney.Chiara Pesaresi - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:193-209.
    The aim of this article is to analyze the idea of the event conceived as crisis and conflict in Patočka and Maldiney’s philosophies. The event is what tears the horizon of the meaningful world apart and opens a new world: it represents the opening of a crisis in the human existence and at the same time the condition of any future crisis to come. By reading Maldiney’s texts on the “pathique” and psychosis along with Patočka’s descriptions of historical existence, we (...)

    Entre Réversibilité Et Réverbération: Une Approche Phénoménologique de la Violence Sociale.Delia Popa - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:129-151.
    How can phenomenology help address the problem of social violence? Can phenomenology provide an adequate description of its essence? Is the phenomenological method able to deepen and transform its comprehension? The paper is an attempt to answer these questions through an analysis of three different testimonies of social violence entailing elements of phenomenological description. Starting with a minimal definition of the phenomenological description, understood as search for a meaning for a lived experience and substitution with those who suffer, the article (...)

    Bonds of Trust: Thinking the Limits of Reciprocity with Heidegger and Michel Henry.Max Schaefer - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:289-309.
    This paper seeks to address whether human life harbours the possibility of a gratuitous or non-reciprocal form of trust. To address this issue, I take up Descartes’ account of the cogito as the essence of all appearing. With his interpretation of Descartes’ account of the cogito as an immanent and affective mode of appearing, I maintain that Henry provides the transcendental foundation for a non-reciprocal form of trust, which the history of Western philosophy has largely covered over by forgetting this (...)

    Parasitic Confrontations: Toward a Phenomenology of Collective Violence.Michael Staudigl - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:75-101.
    This paper provides a phenomenological exploration of the phenomenon of collective violence, specifically by following the leading clue of war from Plato to the “new wars” of late globalization. It first focuses on the genealogy of the legitimization of collective violence in terms of “counter-violence” and then demonstrates how it is mediated by constructions of “the other” in terms of “violence incarnate.” Finally, it proposes to explore such constructions—including the “barbarian” in Greek antiquity, “the cannibal” in the context of Colonialism, (...)

    The Ineluctable Sign in Sartre’s Account of Franconay’s Imitation.Ahmet Suner - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:311-325.
    The most interesting example of all the physical images that Sartre examines in L’Imaginaire concerns a female performer’s imitation of a male performer. The example is a unique instance in which Sartre deals explicitly with the possibility of ambiguity and hybridity in consciousness. Sartre’s introduction of the sign into the consciousness of imitation ties the perception of Franconay with the imaged Chevalier, but it also leads to the dissemination of the sign across the entire consciousness, a consequence that runs against (...)

    Metamorphoses of Violence.Bernhard Waldenfels & Amalia Trepca - 2019 - Studia Phaenomenologica 19:19-35.
    Based on the argument that violence has a parasitic quality rather than an essence of its own, this article seeks to bring to light the conversion processes through which violence crystallises out of, as well as into, various phenomena. Violence is first examined in terms of the relation between perpetrator and victim with, however, an emphasis on the fact that violence cannot be reduced to the intention or the act of the perpetrator. On the contrary, violence is shown to have (...)
