Time and Narrative (Volume 2)

In quantity 1 of this three-volume paintings, Paul Ricoeur tested the kin among time and narrative in historic writing. Now, in quantity 2, he examines those family in fiction and theories of literature.

Ricoeur treats the query of simply how some distance the Aristotelian notion of "plot" in narrative fiction should be multiplied and no matter if there's a element at which narrative fiction as a literary shape not just blurs on the edges yet ceases to exist in any respect. even though a few semiotic theorists have proposed all fiction will be decreased to an atemporal constitution, Ricoeur argues that fiction depends upon the reader's figuring out of narrative traditions, which do evolve yet inevitably comprise a temporal size. He seems at how time is absolutely expressed in narrative fiction, really via use of tenses, standpoint, and voice. He applies this method of 3 books which are, in a feeling, stories approximately time: Virgina Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway; Thomas Mann's Magic Mountain; and Marcel Proust's Remembrance of items Past.

Sample text

This is the crucial aspect of the eschatological problem, as the grief Heidegger registers in Paul based on 1 Thessalonians is grounded in this experience of radical uncertainty, which spreads itself out, enveloping Paul’s entire mission as an apostle. Paraphrasing the message of his letter, Heidegger writes that Paul effec- Heidegger’s Paul 37 tively conveys the following to the Thessalonians regarding their mission as Christians: “If it fails, it is my fault; and therefore I cannot bear it [kann ich es nicht aushalten].

At issue here is the fact that in its attempt to establish Paul as model for conceiving time philosophically, the commentary on 1 and 2 Thessalonians generates a hidden dilemma in Heidegger’s work that never got resolved, but that nonetheless set the stage for Heidegger’s painstaking de-theologization of Augustinian anthropology in 1921. The dilemma as I describe it below is a function of the role that Pauline eschatology briefly played for the early Heidegger, whose interest in religiosity was directly related to his sense of the potential, and potential shortcomings, of Husserlian phenomenology.

As he protects the distinction between the object-historical and the absolute-historical in part by excluding from the latter mode of enactment forms of testimony pertaining to the former mode, Heidegger gives the impression that one cannot detect in an objective sense the “enactment character” of genuinely religious awaiting. ”78 The unmistakable adaptation of Husserlian terminology is crucial here. For Husserl the realm of consciousness is unified by the ego. In reflecting upon consciousness as a whole the ego renders present the sum total of elements comprising this whole, and these elements are then said to be present in the mode of presentification (Vergegenständlichung).
