Interfacticité transcendantale, utopie et politique chez Marc Richir

[Transcendental interfacticity, utopia and politics in Marc Richir]

The concept of “utopia” appears in Marc Richir’s first article in 1968. Although Richir does not ever explicitly claim it, it nevertheless plays a very fundamental role in his thought, particularly in the political field. By analyzing the different layers of meaning that characterize the human community, from the most established to the most archaic, we would like to defend the idea that what he calls in Du sublime en politique “utopian sociality” or even “the utopian community” is in truth the register of transcendental interfacticity. To do this, we will have to explain in what and how the socio-political link differs from the links of transcendental intersubjectivity and interfacticity. We will argue that, for Richir, it is phantasia and affectivity that hold the political community together. We will then explore what role transcendental interfacticity plays in the field of politics, more particularly in its articulation with the declination of absolute transcendence into political transcendence.
