The world-horizon as the whereto of experience

Saulius Geniusas

pp. 209-224

This chapter addresses the third and final figure of the world-horizon, conceived as the whereto of experience. There is a common assumption that underlies the first two notions of the world-horizon (the world-horizon as the wherefrom and the wherein of experience): both notions are limited by sensuous and unmodalized experience. By contrast, to thematize the world-horizon as the whereto of experience is to describe in its essential features the enrichment of sense that the world-horizon undergoes due to modalization and non-sensuous experience. The chapter shows how the world-horizon, as the whereto of experience, is linked to the productivity of modalized experience, the historicity of subjectivity, the continuous generation of new types of experience, and finally, the streaming-in of subjective accomplishments into world-experience. The chapter also addresses the relation between the concepts of the world-horizon and the life-world.
