Animal Subjectivities? The Phenomenological Conceptualization of Animality by Edmund Husserl - Is it possible to speak of a Husserlian phenomenology of the animal? In the course of his phenomenological analyses, Husserl thematizes animals as a case of “abnormality”, in order to investigate the subjectivity that constitutes the human world as a normal world. The individuation of an animal “egological structure”, and the transcendental function of animal “subjectivity” – characterized by essential differences from “personal” human subjectivity – hint at the profundity and boldness of Husserl’s research. However, what is the origi-nal contribution of phenomenology on this issue, in comparison with that of the empirical sciences? Phe-nomenology declares and problematizes the experience of a lifeworld as its own field of activity, and ad-dresses it as the implicit ground for every scientific observation and reconstruction. Phenomenology, thus, provides a new approach to animal life, avoiding naive ontological assumptions about it.
