The Reactivation of the Past as an Ethical Demand on the Phenomenologist

  • Alcira B. Bonilla
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 37)


There is no better tribute to a deceased thinker than to emphasize the current importance and fruitfulness of his work, and to discuss both the literal meaning of his texts, and what the texts suggest or of what they are silent on but state in one way or another. Thus we recover not only the philosopher’s image, but also his “shadow.”1 This “shadow” constitutes a shelter and a mission for all of us who have decided to think in critical dialogue with phenomenology.
