Life Powerful Force Between Virtuality and Enactment

  • Clara Mandolini
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 110)


The chapter discusses the peculiarity and the continuity of Tymieniecka’s phenomenology of life and philosophical enterprise, in relation to the renovation of the ancient concept of logos spermatikos, seminal reason. The theme is introduced by focusing on the central interrogative issue of philosophy as inquiry about life and its developmental features and conditions. Concepts, such as force and energy, receive a new relevancy in phenomenology of life, according to the demanding attempt to grasp the way how life develops itself and how it generates different living beings and their own unfolding.
