Abstract :
To conceptualize the relationship between phenomenology and politics requires a concept of politics that does not reduce it to being only the simple expression of something else: a social community, a relationship of power, the government of human beings or the administration of things. This article proposes a conceptualization of the connection between phenomenology and politics from the perspective of Hannah Arendt and starting from two premises. First, we can only think politics if we give full consideration to plurality. Second, to take plurality into consideration belongs to a 'kind of phenomenology' that can be called a phenomenology of plural action. The article starts with a general reflection on the connections between phenomenology and politics, then presents the pre-conditions of this phenomenology of plural action, and finally sketches out the political significance of manifestation or phenomenality.
