Abstract

A phenomenological encounter makes it possible to render common the unsurpassable depths of life and to awaken its dynamics. Otherwise, what would someone else ( be it psychologist, psychoanalyst, psychiatrist) be capable of, if the partners of each encounter were not always implicated in what is common to any life and through which living individuals affect and exress each other, attesting their interdependence? How could suffering be transformable, how could anyone find or give meaning to a life that seems to devoid of it if clinical intervention was not situated in this depth of life were words, gestures, gazes, actions and events find the source of their meaning? In this chapter, by an original reading of Michel Henry's phenomenology, we develop the thesis that it is from this point on, and from the living community ot implies that the clinical and therapeutical work seems to be capable of tying a new affective, narrative and epistemic lace through which a living individual relates to oneself and to life.
