Abstract

In edmund husserl’s later life, Eugen Fink was his most important assistant (see Bruzina 2004; van Kerckhoven 2003), and Fink was influenced by his teachers Husserl and martin heidegger. But from his early beginnings developed his own concept of phenomenologically inspired philosophy (Böhmer 2006). Although he did not establish a phenomenological aesthetics as such, his work contains many singular analyses relevant for phenomenological research in aesthetics. Two topics in Fink’s work are important above all for aesthetics: his theory of image and play, and his attempt to come to terms with the relation of poetry and philosophy.
