Political community

John Drummond

pp. 29-53

This curious and puzzling epigraph immediately raises two issues involved in Husserl's understanding of the political. The first, evident in the first sentence and emphasized by Husserl himself, is the apparent paradox that the state or political community arises at once by nature and by art or practical convention. The second concerns the particular forms of superordination and subordination found in the political community.
