Summary
This text traces a genealogy of phenomenology by bringing attention to Michel Henry in lieu of this ongoing philosophical discourse. His views on life are seen as answering questions opened up by other widely known philosophers such as Kant, Descartes, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Plato, among others. This book seeks to explore the importance of a 20th Century French philosopher whose views on life are equally as important as the aforementioned thinkers because it addresses their unanswered questions. The author also offers her own original critiques of Henry's work as well
