Phenomenology and ontology in Nicolai Hartmann and Roman Ingarden
The objective of this article is to discuss the problem of ontology in terms of the critique of Husserl's so-called "idealistic turning point" by the two phenomenologists, Hartmann and Ingarden. While different in their approaches to the problem – for Hartmann, it is more a matter a metaphysics of knowledge, while for Ingarden, it involves clarifying the controversy on the existence of the world – both seek to reconstruct an ontology that recovers the meaning of the real world. The relationship between essence and existence is thus re-examined in the light of a different interpretation of reality that moves from a methodological framework that grants validity only to a reduction that is eidetic, rather than transcendental.
