The first part of this collection presents articles about central themes of European phenomenology – developed by positions from Husserl, Scheler, Heidegger, Fink, Stein, Merleau-Ponty, Ricœur, Beauvoir, Derrida, Henry, and Patočka –, while the second part first of all deals with phenomenological problems, specifically with a phenomenology of borderline situations like experiences of pain and insanity, but also with so “normal” phenomena like the acoustic volume of sound, further with topics of painting and photography, and with a philosophic-mathematical question in the end. On the whole, this collection provides evidence for a main tendency in contemporary phenomenology, as it is the phenomenological research on structures of the living human body including such problems like birth, love, and pain. At the same time, the articles are documents manifesting a phenomenological crossing over borders: they force a confrontation between different phenomenological positions and engage with other philosophies on the basis of phenomenological points of view, and they apply phenomenological analyses to other disciplines such as psychopathology and aesthetics. Finally, the border itself becomes a topic: in the shape of the ultimate of the absolutely infinite in the closing article of this book.
