A controversial area for phenomenology in general and for Michel Henry’s philosophy of life in particular, has been the understanding and the analyzing of intersubjectivity and the experience of the other. Henry’s phenomenology has as the central engagement of its reflection the subjectivity, conceived as an embodied reality (it is a body, a flesh), an affective and fundamentally living reality, whose praxis is expressed in subjective living work. For Henry’s philosophical point of view, otherness, intersubjectivity, and community are possible only from affectivity, conceived as the only horizon of manifestation, not just for subjectivity but for all possible manifestation, that is to say, as the essence of manifestation.
