The Leftover of the Good Sense: On the Transcendental Philosophy in the Light of the Post-structuralist Critic

Horizon, Fenomenologiceskie Issledovania. 2015. Vol. 4. No. 2. P. 63-70.

The contemporary philosophy mobilizes differrent strategies of interacting with the common sense in its two most important Forms, with the bona mens and thesensus communis. The tradition of the every day language starting from the debates between Moore and Wittgenstein sees the neccessity or to defend the common sense, or to restore it, as if it was once lost. For the poststructuralism, especially for its Deleuzian version, the passion of philosophy is not the common sense, but the paradox. That is why the task of the living philosophy consist also in the provocation of the «sound» human mind. Nevertheless, the defense (or the rehabilitation) and the provocation are not the only possible strategies. For a certain tendency in the phenomenology, which places itself in aftermath of the kantian transcendentalism (the mature Husserl, Fink, recently Richir), the essential moment of the philosophical work consists in the «suspention» of the self-understood claims of the natural objectivism, of the «power of „common sense“».
