Subject: Re: MB: The outside

Obviously one of Husserls main problems has to do with the outside, but
what does it really mean that he ends with conciousness? Even though one
can say that his attempt, in Cartesian meditations, to find out how the
other is given for us, in many ways failed, he certainly attacked the
question. Well, of course Husserl ends with consciousness; but why should
THAT worry me? Maybe that's what you wanted to say (as a swede, nuances in
the english language sometimes disappears), but I would really like to see
a discussion concerning inside/outside. And this of course evokes the
relation Husserl-Derrida-Blanchot, and the notion of paregon.
