About this book


The classic conception of human transcendental consciousness assumes its self-supporting existential status within the horizon of life-world, nature and earth.  Yet this assumed absoluteness does not entail the nature of its powers, neither their constitutive force.  This latter call for an existential source reaching beyond the generative life-world network.  Transcendental consciousness, having lost its absolute status (its point of reference) it is the role of the logos to lay down the harmonious positioning in the cosmic sphere of the all, establishing an original foundation of phenomenology in the primogenital ontopoiesis of life. ​
