This paper argues that Heidegger’s 1924 lecture on “The Concept of Time” can be appropriated and reinterpreted to surpass some of the inherent limits of Being and Time. Furthermore, it tries to demonstrate the passage beyond deconstruction, which also attempts to critique the unity, stability, and systematic nature of fundamental ontology in Being and Time and the latter’s attempts to destroy the history of metaphysical conceptions of time. The paper concludes with speculative metaphysical ruminations on future directions for continental philosophy.
