"Hegel, Husserl and the Phenomenology of Historical Worlds" by Tanja Staehler is an effort of integration between the phenomenological thinking of two of the most influential philosophers in the contemporary tradition: G.W.F. #Hegel and Edmund #Husserl. The author’s intention is to re-frame a #phenomenology of historical and cultural worlds by offering a mutual interpenetration of the two German philosophers.

The main thesis shows how Husserl’s phenomenology radicalises Hegel’s by adding the character of infinite openness to the teleological development of historical Spirit which afterwards will manifest itself as horizonally constituted.

At the same time an Hegelian narrative applies to the entire “parabola” of Husserl’s thought, which the author describes as a progressive development from an abstract to a concrete phenomenology.

Staehler takes the side of #Derrida and #Steinbock by defending the presence of a third phase in Husserl’s #philosophy, alongside the static and the genetic, which she names historical. The three stages also serve as the methodological sections of the work.

Some people think that Atheism and Existentialism as something in common because most of the Existentialist are Atheist.

But Jean Paul Sartre an atheist, suggests that the declaration of Atheism is not a necessary component of existential thought.

This is because Existentialism is not, or at least is not intended to be, Metaphysics. It is not a metaphysical attempt to explain and categorize what is the world and what is beyond and it hence does not seek to prove or disprove God.

The existentialist does not concern itself with the controversial argument of God existence.

Whether God exist or not is a meaningless question to the existentialist because if god exist or not, it cannot change the human condition or remove human suffering and evil in the world so why bother about him anyway.

Existentialism teach us to focus on the present do all we can to improve the human condition with all we have and live authentically by facing the challenges before us in Good faith.

When I approached Levinas, I always felt that I could not recognize myself, an Orthodox Christian, in the Christianity that sometimes was put down during the discussions I had with my peers. The "scientific truth" of the Bible was never an issue for me...

So, anyone want to talk about Signature Event Context by Derrida? Specifically where they would place the sign? I imagine it to look something like this (see pic) and wonder if anyone on this super busy forum would agree or disagree.
