The Originary

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines philosophers Edmund Husserl and Henri Bergson's view on the concept of time. According to Husserl, absolute consciousness constitutes a primal source point as a retained, present, and protented impression. It explains that Bergson's approach to duration through consciousness is somewhat similar to Immanuel Kant's, and he sees time generation as resulting from reflection.

Keywords: Edmund Husserl; Henri Bergson; time; absolute consciousness; Immanuel Kant
