Time, or the mediation of the now

on Dan Zahavi's "irrelational" account of self-temporalization

Matthew Coate

pp. 565-591

On Dan Zahavi's Husserlian account of the subject, the self-temporalization of subjectivity presupposes what he calls an "immediate impressional self-manifestation." It follows from this view that self-awareness is an inherent power of the one who will be subject, rather than a product of sociality introduced into life from without. In this paper, I argue against Zahavi's position by going over the development of Husserl's account of time-consciousness, examining the positions Husserl takes and the reasons that he comes to these positions. Once we reach Husserl's ultimate account, it becomes evident that Zahavi's position is untenable.
