Origin, Genesis and Retrospection: Structural Analogies in Phenomenology, Deconstruction and Depth-psychology with Regard to Temporality and Trauma

Psychoanalysis uses originary myths such as parricide or the trauma of birth in order to account for the primal entanglement between subjective experience and repression. In the philosophical tradition, the non-temporal origin that functions as the real foundation for all being, a foundation that – in the aftermath of idealism, phenomenology and deconstruction – has increasingly been confronted with the issue of transcendentality/empiricity. Therefore, the analytical-therapeutical as well as the descriptive-temporal genesis in Freud, Husserl or Derrida overlap in matters such as the relation of being to becoming, of ego to history, whereby the idea of immanent life – in Henry’s definition – is always taken for granted. This study aims to discover whether an immediacy of origin can be experienced in auto-affection or it can solely remain accessible to consciousness as a trauma of the unreachable interconnectedness of myth and experience.
