My aim is to show how, in Michel Henry's work, we find elements that allow us to articulate the phenomenality of power and philosophy of gender. The intention is to show the expression of the modality of the transcendental powers of the self as a body in its original phenomenality. It is on this phenomenological ground that status and role and, consequently, human relations and, in our case, man/woman, are rooted. We conclude by showing that the phenomenology of life opens up a vast field of investigation to current issues that are not exclusive to psychology, sociology and biology–neurosciences for example–and that is why phenomenology in general and Henry's phenomenology in particular has a space of their own.
