Continuum has placed online an excerpt
from Tracy Colony's upcoming
translation of Phenomenology of Intuition and Expression
(GA 59), Freiburg, summer semester, 1920.
The development of historical consciousness and therewith the advancement of becoming life as primal phenomenon into contemporary Dasein calls into question the absolute and every purported knowledge of this absolute and its systematics, every so-directed philosophy already prefigured in Plato’s doctrine of ideas. We thus have a first problem group that springs from the prevailing of life as primal phenomenon in the first meaning-direction. In the language of contemporary philosophy, this group shall be identified by the problem of absolute validity — of the a priori.
