Sample text

Life, the cosmos and the individual take on new coordinates, and it is above all the relationship between these vital elements that interests her. This relationship 29 Ibid. pp. 166–167 (my translation). 36 F. Alfieri is able to demonstrate that only the vital lymph of the human condition reveals the original meaning of “life”. The human condition must therefore be grasped in terms of the unity of everything that is alive, and in close connection with the laws that regulate the cosmos. In this network of relationships, each element occupies a very precise place.

It is clear that for Conrad-Martius the starting point or rather the priority lies precisely in the “real”, and that she intends to “go beyond” any idealistic position – the implicit reference in this passage is the Husserlian position – that contemplates the real only in close connection with the ‘I’. 23 In this way Conrad-Martius seeks to give “concreteness” to the real, which cannot remain exclusively within consciousness, but may be assumed to have an autonomous structure of its own outside consciousness.

What is being debated here is a transformation of the Meontik into a form of ontology in which the traditional metaphysical questions can be answered thanks to phenomenological instruments (to be exact, through the instruments of meontic phenomenology), and can give solutions which differ from those proposed by the old metaphysics. The same structure of the previous period reappears as the framework of a theoretical proposal, the aim of which is to examine the idea of Being in all its components, considering both the ontological configuration of beings as well as their ontological ground.
