The Development of Time Consciousness From Husserl to Heidegger

  • V. C. Thomas
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 31)


This essay aims to elucidate how Heidegger, who edited Husserl’s “lectures on time consciousness,” developed the latter’s treatment of the phenomenology of time consciousness. Although Heidegger does not criticise Husserl directly in Being and Time, it is, indeed, true that Heidegger extensively adapted Husserl’s phenomenological notions on time to suit his purpose. The ingenuity of Heidegger as a philosopher consists in his reconciling a spectrum of notions falling within the domain of Husserl’s phenomenology with his own hermeneutical phenomenological considerations.
