In order to focus solely on the things themselves, the attentiveness or discrimination proper to the practice of Husserlian phenomenology has always also had to catch a glimpse of a scarcely thematizable surplus or excess which, withheld from the explicit content of the act or object, enables the phenomenon to be seen and described. Accordingly, to borrow from a slightly different vocabulary; such phenomenology has always been open not only to the present, to what is present, but also to its presencing, to the manner in which it becomes present.
