Summary/Abstract: Th e legacy of Husserlian phenomenology in France, as Paul Ricoeur observes, has inspired a series of “Husserlian heresies.” Th is paper seeks to shed light on the Husserl heretics through a study of two infl uential thinkers who introduced Husserl’s to French readers: Levinas and Ricoeur. Th eir introductions gave rise to the “standard picture” of Husserl as an Idealist. Th eir criticism of Husserl’s Idealism then provides the springboard into their own original thought. What ultimately emerges from this, however, are two diff erent visions of how phenomenology should relate to its own limits.
