Derrida et le temps husserlien

  • Daniel Giovannangeli Université de Liège


The author examines the several phases of Derrida's interpretation of Husserl phenomenology of time consciousness. The main issue is a —non-husserlian— thesis about the deferred action of primordial impression, always intermingled with retention, allowing a critique of Husserl's metaphysics of presence, and an approximation with Freud's views about the Nachträglichkeit structure ofpsychic life. Consequently, the author stresses that Freud will allow, despite Husserl's explicit assertions, a completion of phenomenology beyond the limits Husserl imposes on it (and on himself), as he remains dominated by the assumption of the absolute priority of primordial impression over retention.
