Temporal divergence creates a need for new narratives and paradigms. In Diverging Time David Carvounas supports this assertion through detailed expository and diagnostic readings of Kant, Hegel, and Marx. He focuses on their contribution to our understanding of modernity as an epochal shift in the relationship between past and future―recasting the significance of the past and future of the modern present. Despite their different solutions to the problem of temporal coordination, they urged the modern world to look not to the past but to the newly opened future for continuity, meaning, and purpose. This book not only offers a fresh look at a defining characteristic of modernity, but also makes a compelling case that a coherent modern temporal structure requires a sustainable orientation toward the future―an orientation that Kant, Hegel, and Marx delineate in distinctive and powerful ways.

About the Author:

David Carvounas is Adjunct Professor of Political Theory at the University of Toronto.

Review:

This is an excellent piece of work. Carvounas' powerful treatment of the ideas of Kant, Hegel, and Marx reflects careful reading and a comprehensive grasp of their work. (Phillip Hansen, University of Regina)

For all those who have felt that the postmodern speed of late modern life has disrupted their relation to the past and future by disorienting their very experience of time in the present, Carvounas's work offers great insight into the challenges that mustbe met if a coherent sense of time joining what we have been to what we are and could possibly become is to be restored. Carvounas teaches us why our past has had a future, and what we must do in the present to take our future back. An original and compelling theoretical and philosophical perspective on late modernity, and on how we are situated in relation to a temporal understanding of the world constructed by Kant, Hegel, and Marx... (Morton Schoolman, SUNY-Albany)

This work is at once thoughtful and thought-provoking. (Victor Wolfenstein, University of California, Los Angeles)
