Sample text

There is a temporal flux of discrete moments shading off. Amid such shading, however, it is fathomed that there persists a limit-ing of receding difference which is constant: it is here where Husserl finds the thread for his suppression, reduction of original temporality and the construction of objectivity and identity. This latter is founded upon difference, yet as a recurring difference which thus indicates the identical. Husserl gives this ‘identity’ a specific meaning vis-a-vis his theory of ‘absolute consciousness’, and restricts any investigation into the being of a temporal objectivity within the horizons of an extratemporal possibility.

Where does the questioner notice itself as a questioner? Once again, why would, could, anyone ever think differently? Indications of Ecstatic Temporality 23 The Destruktion of generic time To cast into relief specify Heidegger’s tracing of the characters of generic, common time to our topos of existence, of original temporality, in Basic Problems, I will turn to Husserl’s treatment of time in the Phenomenology of Internal Time Consciousness. For Heidegger, this text is a significant example of a now-time which owes its origin, along with the ‘mystical’ conception of infinity, to the transplantation of a mathematically constructed time, a mathesis universalis into phenomenology.

The be-ing of the self, if the question is asked, is interpreted in light of a tacit sense of the being of beings, which means that the being of the self is projected in the manner of an ‘ontology of things’, of technic and principle, and thus, in the light of common time. In this way, intimate temporalities of the self and of existence are suppressed in a self-forgetting, concealment. The self becomes once again captivated by the shadows of the ‘cave’, in the polis of Anyone, measuring shadows which dance upon that wall – sketching patterns and repetitions.
