La proto-structure spatialisante et dynamique : la solution patočkienne au probleme de l’espace
The paper analyses Patočka’s phenomenological treatment of the concept of space and of personal spatiality. Patočka’s solution (the pronominal proto-structure of interpellation) is used to assess Heidegger’s approach to the concept of space. Patočka’s phenomenological advancements in regards to his
teacher’s developments are considered first through a comparison of their respective concepts of “Earth”, and second, through an evaluation of the reasons
of the impossibility of the Heideggerian attempt, in Sein und Zeit, to reduce spatiality to temporality.
