Transzendentalität und Generativität

Alexander Schnell

pp. 153-183

In this contribution I would like to put forward an original project for a transcendental philosophy or a transcendental phenomenology that takes seriously the concept of the “transcendental” in so far as it is centered on the idea of “conditioning” (in so doing, I likewise seek to answer some critical questions concerning this concept in Kant and Husserl). This newly founded transcendental phenomenology will be developed as a “generative phenomenology” that links my previous attempt at a “constructive phenomenology” (which had introduced the concept of a “phenomenological construction” in a non-Heideggerian and non-Finkian way) to my earlier attempt at a “speculative transcendentalism” (where I had already distinguished between Kantian and Husserlian transcendentalisms). This project is not limited to internal considerations within the tradition of transcendentalism, but extends to discussion of a host of contemporary “new realisms.”
