Phenomenology of the Amorous Life: Literature, Earth, and the Absence of the Interval
2001 (English)In: Analecta Husserliana, Vol. 71, 113-128 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The essay argues that John Cowper Powys's novel 'Weymouth Sands' exhibits the structure of life as constituted by feeling, and the structure of feeling as consituted by itself. This outlook on auto-constitution as auto-affectivity and on auto-affectivity as auto-constitution permits a form of text-explication in which the significant units of the literary work of art are seen as self-actualized rather than as functions of certain forces, agents, or contexts transcendent to them.
