Temporal Awareness
Kelly, Sean. 2005. “Temporal Awareness.” Phenomenology and Philosophy of Mind, edited by David Woodruff Smith and Amie L Thomasson. Oxford: Clarendon Press. HOLLISAbstract

Philosophical work on the mind flowed in two streams through the 20th century: phenomenology and analytic philosophy. This volume aims to bring them together again, by demonstrating how work in phenomenology may lead to significant progress on problems central to current analytic research, and how analytical philosophy of mind may shed light on phenomenological concerns. Leading figures from both traditions contribute specially written essays on such central topics as consciousness, intentionality, perception, action, self-knowledge, temporal awareness, and mental content. Phenomenology and Philosophy of Mind demonstrates that these different approaches to the mind should not stand in opposition to each other, but can be mutually illuminating.
