Institution and Passivity : Course Notes from the College de France (1954-1955) Paperback / softback
Part of the Studies in Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy series
Institution and Passivity is based on course notes for classes taught at the Bibliotheque Nationale de Paris.
Philosophically, this collection connects the issue of passive constitution of meaning with the dimension of history, furthering discussions and completing arguments started in The Visible and the Invisible and Signs (both published by Northwestern).
Leonard Lawlor and Heath Massey's translation makes available to an English-speaking readership a critical transitional text in the history of phenomenology.
