This study investigates the influence of Merleau Ponty’s (and to an extent Husserl’s) tendency to focus on the phenomenal field in articulating the re¬lation between phenomenality and transcendentality and in weakening the phenomenological differentiation of appearance and phenomenon. The ques¬tion is posed of how, in the context of phenomenological work with the field, we might understand the fact that phenomenology is a transcendental philo¬sophical discipline. The study emphasises the transformative significance of the transcendental method and prepares the way for a topological interpre¬tation of the transcendental field.
