||… By the 19th century, the natural science would observe the emergence of a new focus throughout their disciplinary offspring: the social sciences. The human would become the new element of reference for all possible enquiries about the world. Marx, Nietzsche or Freud would, in their own respective way, prioritise the human factor within a number of worldly processes that were earlier discussed only through larger principles. Psychology would be one of such disciplines, pushing the nascent cognitive science set by Kant to enquire on the way human’s mental faculties function. It is in this context that the approach of phenomenology would take shape in the late 19th century, with Franz Brentano and Edmund Husserl. According to the phenomenologists, the world and the human being has to be investigated through the specific evaluation of human consciousness. Husserl would soon realise how, unlike in the case of physical science, a study of consciousness must directly address the question of time. Phenomenology, from the start, would be — among other things — a discourse on time. It is this discourse that I hope to explore in this series.
