(p.1) Introduction
The Moment

Heidrun Friese

Liverpool University Press

The introduction presents the concept of ‘the moment’ and the different perceptions that define it. It provides Plato's interpretation (as the peculiarity in which the transition from being to non-being and non-being to being occurs), Hegel's (as the point-like boundary and foundation of time) and other interpretations. It defines moment as the crucial pause, which bids adieu to the irrevocable past and opens up towards that which is to come, to the not-yet of the future. The introduction concludes by indicating that the reflections included in the book aims to for an understanding the concept of ‘the moment’.

Keywords:   Plato, Hegel, interruption in time, eternity, reflection
