The aim of the article is to attempt to present Husserl’s phenomenology as it is understood in the books of Ivan Blecha, especially in Proměny fenomenologie (Transformations of Phenomenology). Husserl’s phenomenology is, in these books, described from a standpoint which treats it as a philosophy enabling a certain kind of realism. Blecha’s position is thus characterised as a transformation of Husserl’s phenomenology, stressing a certain realist perspective. A critical analysis of several moments in this conception is completed first by an excursion into the work of one of the first interpreters of the “other”, non-classical, Husserl, that of Ludwig Landgrebe, and then by an excursion into the work of Maurice Merleau-Ponty, which is no longer a mere interpretation of Husserl, but a step beyond in the direction of a specific understanding of phenomenology. The author of the article finds a similar tendency in the work of Ivan Blecha.
