Lambert Wiesing (University of Jena)
Phenomenology of Self-Consciousness


The reality of self-consciousness cannot be explained – but it can be described phenomenologically by asking the question: What am I like for myself in my experience of self-consciousness? How must I be for me in the world because there is my self-consciousness?

The thesis of the lecture is: every being-in-the-world is necessarily a being-in-the-world in a contingent style. Therefore I propose – and this happens in explicit reference to Heinrich Wölfflin – to introduce the painterly and the linear as basic concepts for the description of the being of Dasein. It is the respective dominance of the Leib-being or the Körper-having, which is for me the imposition of a painterly or linear style of being of my Dasein.
