Example text

These, as will be shown, are superimposable neither upon the distentions of the soul, which are the past and future, nor upon retentions and protentions, nor finally, on the existential ecstases. This is because the future is the dimension, both of the trait that draws one toward death, and the dimension of that which carries us along from birth. By virtue of mortality, the future solifies, by virtue of natality, it totalizes. The task will be to retrace this contextualization-decontextualization back to the first conditions, “conditions” that are disparate and hence no longer a priori, “first” in the temporal sense and hence not in a thetic sense.
