Community from the Perspective of Life

Ruud Welten


My question is whether a phenomenology of community is possible. Phenomenology
starts from experience, in the Husserlian sense of Erlebnis. Now, can a
community be experienced, and not empirically but rather phenomenologically
understood? What is a community from the viewpoint of experience? In this text,
I will respond to, and elaborate on, this question. More specifically, I will attempt
to understand community from the perspective of life by drawing on the work of
Michel Henry.
