(p.33) Chapter 2 The Aporia of the Instant in Derrida's Reading of Husserl
The Moment

Maurizio Ferraris

Liverpool University Press

This chapter contains a reflection by Maurizio Ferraris regarding Derrida's understanding of Husserl's thoughts on the phenomenology of perception. In reference to time as a circle, a moment is an aporia or an interruption in the flow of the circle. Ferraris introduces the philosophical and theological understanding to aporia to further expand the theory that time is a sum of moments or a limit between past and future. The reflection continues on to the elaborating that aporia also refers to the present.

Keywords:   aporia, phenomenology, sum of moments, Derrida, circle, pharmakon
