In this paper, I propose to revisit Husserl's and Patoèka's notions of the lifeworld to reflect on the world we live in, as opposed to the 'scientific' descriptions which we so commonly take to be the 'correct' way of knowing the world. We need to consider the history of ideas to see how our present-day language in the life-world is saturated by the formalised language of sciences. By revisiting Husserl's and Patoèka's debate we can consider anew the path that both thinkers sketched.
