Abstract

Whitehead reconnaît à la subjectivité un rôle primordial, mais il s'en fait une idée différente de la conception idéaliste qui engendre le solipsisme. Le sujet est pris dans un ensemble de relations qui se découvrent dans l'expérience du sentir (feeling): ni simple conscience ni pure émotion, il se révèle dans la perception d'entités et de facteurs à partir du donné de l'expérience, mais aussi comme tension entre ce qu'il est (sujet) et ce qu'il a à être (superjet). Whitehead retrouve le lien profond du sujet et de la liberté dans le lien du moi et du soi. Whitehead grants subjectivity a primary function. Yet his interpretation differs from the idealist conception inasmuch as the latter leads to solipsism. The subject is involved in a serie of relations which emerge from within the experience of « feeling ». The subject is neither mere consciousness nor pure emotion: it reveals itself in the perception of entities and factors originating in the experiential given, as well as in the tension between what it is (as subject) and what it ought to be (as superject). Whitehead retrieves the profound connection between subject and freedom in the connection between ego and self.
