The paper deals with the theme of birth discussed in Edmund Husserl’s text Das Kind, in which he shows the progressive development of the infant’s potential until it reaches the life of consciousness and the lived experience of entropathy. Birth is linked to death, and both themes are treated in Husserl’s Grenzprobleme. The foregoing connection allows his philosophical-phenomenological anthropology to engage questions about our pre-birth and post-death. Husserl’s interpretation, according to which the human being pre-exists bodily life and survives it, is linked up with the ethical-religious reflections present in his other philosophical writings.
