Spektor D.M. Time: a game of sovereignty and death

Published in journal "Philosophy and Culture", 2016-1 in rubric "Philosophy of death", pages 117-125.

Resume: This article makes an attempt to cleanse the notion of time from the naturalistic associations, which across the centuries connect it with the natural cycles on one hand, and the familiar markers of sequence (before, now, after) on the other. The “perception” of time, in the interpretations of which all the way until today, dominate the methods on introspection, is subjected to the similar criticism. The focus of examination is the conditions of origin of time and its cultural functions, which are defined first and foremost by the task of institutionalization of “reality”. The article reviews “time” in its genesis; in addition to that, it subjects to reconstruction the “historicism”’; “reduction to foundations” is carried out based on the attraction of various anthropological material. Scientific novelty consists in the reframing of the formed ideas that interpret time as a natural given. Time and its institutionalizing realities are compared with their origin – a sovereign being on one hand, and various institutions of reality (fear of death, body, ephemera, etc.) on the other. As a result, time appears as the most universal form of sublimation of the self-preservation instinct and the axis of structuring of the “real”.

Keywords: Continuum, Sovereignty, Naturalism, Metaphysics, Time, Being-to-death, Sublimation of fear, Procedurality, Realism , Reality
