Das Problem des ,Ur-Ich, bei Edmund Husserl: Die Frage nach der selbstverständlichen ,Nähe' des Selbst

Der späte Husserl spricht von dem ,Ur-Ich’ als dem Ich, das der transzendentalen Intersubjektivität in einem gewissen Sinne vorangeht. Dies besagt aber nicht, dass es ein solipsistisches Ich wäre, das dem Anderen einseitig voranginge. Der Terminus ,Ur-Ich’ zeigt vielmehr die Ursprünglichkeit einer asymmetrischen und irreversiblen Relation zwischen Ich und Anderem zugespitzt an.

The much lauded “academic freedom” will be expelled from the German university; for this freedom was not genuine because it was only negative. It primarily meant lack of concern, arbitrariness of intentions and inclinations, lack of restraint in what was done and left undone. The concept of the freedom of the German student is now brought back to its truth. In future, the bond and service of German students will unfold from this truth (G16, 113/10). In opposing a purely negative freedom Heidegger would seem to agree with philosophers such as Rousseau and Kant.
