The Moment: Time and Rupture in Modern Thought

Heidrun Friese


Modern philosophical thought has a manifold tradition of emphasizing ‘the moment’. ‘The moment’ demands questioning all-too-common notions of time, of past, present and future, uniqueness and repetition and rupture and continuity. This book addresses the key questions posed by ‘the moment’, considering writers such as Nietzsche, Husserl, Benjamin and Badiou, and elucidates the connections between social theory, philosophy, literary theory and history that are opened up by this notion.

Keywords: the moment, time, Nietzsche, Husserl, Benjamin, Badiou, social theory, philosophy, literary theory, history
