Much of Edmund Husserl’s writings on the religious can be better understood when they are read alongside his more general critique of the affects and their latent passivity, which extends constituted being and phenomenality to include an “affective allure” of a hiddenness in the phenomena. His remarks in the manuscripts therefore may be understood after the lessons of a genesis and historicity to the phenomena, and, as it were, to the phenomena’s re-mythologization. He once remarked to Roman Ingarden that he considered “the problem of God” “the greatest problem of philosophy”. His characterization of a faith-experience would lead to the positing of a possible theo-phanic revelation in Jean-Luc Marion’s sense. One could say that he uncovers a sense of the infinite within each present experience and, insofar as he allows for the possibility of an alien-phenomenon, there is space enough for that which gives this sense to show itself.
