The outside is a very significant problem.  For Husserl, the outside,   
though he never uses this word as far as I am aware of, is the realm of   
transcendent things, which are outside any valid claims to knowledge.   
 This is the classical epistemological position of transcendental   
idealism.  This outside for Blanchot isn't this, though I would want to   
say that it is nonetheless still a phenomenological 'concept'.  You   
 arrive at this 'concept' through a reduction of the reduction.
