This chapter delves deeper into the understanding of time; since we already have an implicit but nonetheless definite understanding of time, an understanding that can only arise in the situation of being-in-the-world, and since any such time-understanding first makes the question of the essence of time possible, the question is whether and how one can reach “an ‘explanation’ of time that would transcend world-knowledge,” in an overcoming of the mundane level on which problems are posed and resolved. While the overall problem of a phenomenology and philosophy of time can be stated in general terms, dealing with the problem cannot remain on the level of general conceptual statement; it must be done in concrete investigation and in the critical, interpretive reconsideration of both the method and conceptualities at work in that investigation.

Keywords:   essence of time, being-in-the-world, time-understanding, world-knowledge, philosophy of time, interpretive reconsideration
