What is time? In this seminar we will attempt to articulate how and why time becomes a problem for philosophy, with a particular emphasis on the phenomenologies of Edmund Husserl and Martin Heidegger. Texts of Aristotle, Augustine, Kant, Bergson, Levinas, Sartre, and Merleau-Ponty will also be considered, with the aim of inquiring whether the fascination with the intricacies of the problem of time and temporality bode well or ill for the possibility of a coherent philosophy, phenomenological or otherwise.
