Karolina Enquist Källgren


The article develops an investigation of the concept of transcendere, around the concepts of transcendence in Husserl, Heidegger and specifically in María Zambrano’s book La Confesión: género literario. The author suggests that a concept of transcendere can be constructed on the basis of such fundamental notions as difference, movement and direction.

The concept of transcendere may serve as a bridge between political and ontological thinking; the article suggests that this is the case in the thinking of María Zambrano.
