Sample text

15 If all the contracted instants covered the same duration, no difference of intratemporality could be extracted. Deleuze’s response is that while we can indeed “conceive” this kind of present, it is not a “physical possibility”. It is not clear what force the appeal to physicality has, but based on what Deleuze says next, it seems the reason time cannot all be reduced to one coextensive present is that different physical beings at different times have their own temporal needs. 16 Each content measures the “duration” of time passing, and the measurement “varies” depending on its perspective on neighbouring points of view.

The first two seem like straw men. For that matter, why should time have “co-extensivity” as a property in the first place? Even if the present should turn out to be fragmentary (in fact, contraction is the contrary of fragmentation), why is that a problem? The idea that another kind of time has to be posited in order to fill up the time-scope, suggests that time should be a filled continuity, co-extensive with itself. But why should it? Further, the first question, namely why the present passes, is not obvious either.

The past is “the element in which we aim at (vise, glimpse) the former present” (109). This is an epistemological thesis about cognizing the past qua past: the past is the form by which a former present remains visible. If a present were simply present, then once it ceased being present, it would not be cognizable at all. For a present content to be retained, it must be retained not as former present but as simply former. e. in the past. But now, how do we reconcile this argument with the central feature of the synthesis of the present?
