(p.73) Chapter 4 Augen-Blicke
The Moment

Heidrun Friese

Liverpool University Press

This chapter illustrates a reflection by Heirdun Friese regarding how a moment is related to Augen-Blicke, Austrian for ‘the blink of an eye’. Also spelled as augenblick, Friese uses the word to refer to a mere moment, which is a break in the succession of ‘no longer’ and ‘not yet’ or an interruption in continuity. Friese expands on the concept of augenblick and expands it to such categories as The Response (which deals with the possibility of opening a moment as a augenblick through the demands the labour of its unfolding), Das Eräugnis (which refers to the event of an evident experience), and The Moment (which engages in the ideas of Suddenness and Now).

Keywords:   augen-blick, augenblick, response, Das Eräugnis, The Moment, blink, instant, sudden, now
