Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the philosophical interrogation incorporates transcendence movement which is those of being "directed and polarized towards what he is not". If, for being completely a man, it is necessary to be a little more than man, it is exactly because the movement by which man falls in the world and expresses himself, to say his experience of this movement, made him to belong to a horizon of existence which exceeds the sphere of its own subjectivity, and which is more than him. Nevertheless, the movement and expression is secured, thus to depersonalization, by which the man participates in an anonymity which underlies its existence, and by which it becomes confused in "I first unknown to whom everything is given to see or to think, to whom everything calls on, in front of whom there is something". The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: depersonalization; expression; philosophical interrogation; subjectivity; transcendence movement
