Abstract

Dreaming and Wakefulness: On the Possibility of Crossing between Worlds JORGE GARCÍA-GÓMEZ No doubt a basic constitutive-phenomenological principle could be ad- vanced by saying that the everyday, commonsensical world and its contents give themselves immediately and spontaneously to embodied consciousness. And yet such a formulation would be highly misleading, inasmuch as it could hardly do justice to the core sense, let alone to the wealth of implications which primordial worldly experience would al- ready harbor within itself. For one thing, the "axiom" in question would leave out of its compass any consideration of the existence and actuality of the everyday world, including the prerequisites thereof. For another, it would keep silent concerning the specific nature which such a world would pre-predicatively exhibit, both as to form and content. Furthermore, and this is most important for our purposes, it would leave out of focus any number of suggestions, which are delivered unto our conscious grasp as originarily as the sense of a transcendent world qua immediate context of our lives of action. Among other things, I am referring to those intimations which serve to conform the lifeworld itself as given, by framing it already as we gear spontaneously into
