Futurity in phenomenology

Promise and method in Husserl, Levinas, and Derrida

Neal DeRoo(King's University)


From Husserl's account of protention to the recent turn to eschatology in 'theological' phenomenology, the future has always been a key aspect of phenomenological theories of time. This book offers a sustained reflection on the significance of futurity for the phenomenological method itself. In tracing the development of this theme, the author shows that only a proper understanding of the two-fold nature of the future can clarify the way in which phenomenology brings the subject and the world together.
