About this book

This book explores the problem of time and immanence for phenomenology in the work of Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and Jacques Derrida. Detailed readings of immanence in light of the more familiar problems of time-consciousness and temporality provide the framework for evaluating both Husserl's efforts to break free of modern philosophy's notions of immanence, and the influence Heidegger's criticism of Husserl exercised over Merleau-Ponty's and Derrida's alternatives to Husserl's phenomenology. Ultimately exploring various notions of intentionality, these in-depth analyses of immanence and temporality suggest a new perspective on themes central to phenomenology's development as a movement and raise for debate the question of where phenomenology begins and ends.

Reviews

“Michael Kelly offers a reconstruction of the concepts of immanence and time within the framework of Husserl’s phenomenology, followed by a critical evaluation of the reception of these concepts by three of Husserl’s most influential successors and critics: Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, and Derrida. … this book is of potential interest to a general philosophical audience interested in the question of Husserl’s problematic relationship to modern epistemological idealism (mainly Descartes and Kant).” (Emilio Vicuña, Husserl Studies, August, 2017)


“I have personally been waiting for this book for some time, and it has been worth the wait. Written with lucidity on arguably the most difficult and central of phenomenological problems – time – Kelly’s book is a tour de force, shedding new light on all of the thinkers it engages with.” (Jack Reynolds, Professor of Philosophy and Associate Dean, Deakin University, Australia)
