Within the French phenomenological debate after of the Second World War Merleau-Ponty helped to put at the center the genetic investigation of the constitution of the sense. This essay aims to explain why Merleau-Ponty is absent in the thesis of the young Derrida dedicated to the problem of the genesis in Husserl. Derrida wants to offer a reading of Husserl’s phenomenology radically different from the interpretation of Merleau-Ponty. Derrida resumes the interpretation of Fink and demonstrates how the genetic investigation should not be understood as the overcoming of the static analysis, towards an existential phenomenology. The genetic phenomenology of Merleau-Ponty is a misunderstanding of the husserlian transcendental phenomenology.
