Abstract
For all its subtle differences, Husserl scholarship on time-consciousness has reached a consensus that Husserl’s theory underwent a significant interpretiveimprovement starting around 1908 / 1909. On this advance, which concerned the intentional structure and directedness of absolute consciousness, I have cautioned against reading Augustine’s theory of time as a philosophical predecessor to Husserl’s. In a recent “confrontation” with my efforts, Roger Wasserman tried to defend a reading of Augustine’s influence on Husserl’s theory of time by criticizing my reading of Augustine and Husserl. This reply to Wasserman’s challenge reestablishes my reservations about attempts to claim a relation between Augustine and Husserl on time-consciousness, defends the standard interpretation of the development of Husserl’s theory of time-consciousness, and raises several critical questions about Wasserman’s Neoplatonic or Augustinian reading of Husserl on time-consciousness.
