LEVINAS' THINKING ALONG WITH HUSSERL (commentary to the Polish edition of E. Levinas' 'En découvrant l'existence avec Husserl et Heidegger) (Emmanuela Levinasa mysIenie z Husserlem (na marginesie polskiego wydania ksiazki E. Levinasa ....))
The subject of this article is Levinas's interpretation of Husserl's phenomenology and the influence of the latter on the philosophy of Levinas himself. By discovering the intentionality of consciousness, Husserl de facto discovered the transitiveness (la transitivité) of thinking and existence and therefore revolutionized the understanding of transcendentalism. This interpretation has an essential influence on the idea of immanence and transcendence in Levinas' philosophy, according to whom the sphere of immanence is the human universum, while transcendence, or the exterior (l'exteriorité) is radical otherism from this universum, and it can only be detected as a trace. The authoress also points out the analogies between Levinas' understanding of Husserl and the interpretations of his philosophy (especially intentionality) by Polish phenomenologists belonging to Roman Ingarden's post-war school in Krakow (Jan Szewczyk, Józef Tischner).
