Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka’s Phenomenology of Life and its Connections with Roman Ingarden’s Phenomenology
The aim of the article is to present those elements in classical phenomenology which inspired Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka (1923 – 2014) to develop her own concept of the phenomenology of life and the creative human condition. Therefore, her philosophical position will not be presented with references to the key questions of transcendental phenomenology, since she never argued with Edmund Husserl. Tymieniecka clearly emphasized the fact that it was otherwise, claiming that she conducted a polemic on the ontological and metaphysical, and consequently also anthropological ground with Roman Ingarden (1893 – 1970) – her teacher and mentor from the time of philosophical studies at the Jagiellonian University in Poland in 1945 – 1947. And this philosopher’s thought was the main reason for the phenomenological path she chose.
