Time Representation and Its Errors

Edmund Husserl

On the Phenomenology of the Consciousness of Internal Time

B: Supplementary Texts

I "On the Introduction of the Essential Distinction between 'Fresh' Memory and 'Full' Recollection and about the Change in Content and Differences in Apprehension in the Consciousness of Time"

No. 2

Evidence Pertaining to the Perception of Time, to Memory, etc

Paragraph 28

Previously we discussed more distant pasts. We recall the melody we yesterday heard. But we hear it now again in the present. So these currently intuited notes represent the past ones. Each of these representations have temporal relationships: each one follows another in sequence. Because they are all linked together into one longer series, they “depict representationally the one temporally flowing event.” (156d)

So yesterday we experienced notes. They appeared in a sequence. So we also experienced their temporal relations to each other. Today we recall that melody. We are not presently hearing it. However, their temporal relations are still re-presented to us.

It’s also possible that what we recall of the melody is different than it actually happened. “Here, therefore, errors are possible.” (157a)
