Marc Richir is undoubtedly one of the most profound and attentivereaders of the texts of Edmund Husserl. The ability of this author to enter into dialogue with the German philosopher, where he recognizes both the value of his analyzes as well as some of his limitations, puts him at the center of the philosophical discourse of the second half of the 20th century and the present. The most solid his phenomenological path begins in the course of the 80s when in the works of this philosopher a dense and articulated discourse begins to be structured around the architectural levels that are behind and below the experience of the world, natural and intersubjective. Among the possible objections to Husserl, according to Richir we must recognize the substantial paradox that generates the same concept of phenomenon, which the Belgian philosopher tries to reach by means of a new, more radical form of epoché. From that moment, a new research horizon opens up in front of the view of the phenomenologist, made of a phenomenalization considered in its instantaneous and flickering appearance, for which the philosopher must be willing to renounce to the presence of the constituent self, as a condition of all experience and knowledge. Among the topics that make up the Richirian universe, there is that which is directed to the investigation of the minimum contents of experience that are organized before any conceptualization. Returning to the merleupontian concept of Wesen savages, in the course of the 1990s Richir puts his attention on space, and in particular on the form in which it is intimately mixed with time in the constitution of the world of phenomena. The way in which we get to enter the world as beings with knowledge cannot be understood without the husserlian notions of the lived body (Lieb) and the world will be generated, which is a reflection of the original relationship between the son and the mother. The Leiblichkeit will then be the point of dissension (ecárt), the place of a transitional, or “interfactic”, that underlies all spatialization.
