In this contribution, I aim at highlighting the centrality of the concept of habituality in Husserl’s genetic phenomenology from the stand-point of its essential role as mediating term that assures the universal correlation between ego and world, at every level of the constitutive syntheses carried out by the former, as well as in shaping the transcendental structures that define the pure Ego. I shall deal with this topic through an internal interpretive approach, developed along three threads, corresponding to as many meanings among the manifold ones habituality takes on in its different contexts of employment: 1) habits as essential constitutive features of the dynamical horizon structure in which every perception of thing is embedded; 2) the habitualities of the pure Ego as sedimentations of previous intentional experiences; 3) the habitualities of the personal-empirical subject as organism of faculties and dispositional attitudes constituted throughout its individual history.
