In Time After Time, David Wood accepts, without pessimism, the broad postmodern idea of the end of time. Wood exposes the rich, stratified, and non-linear textures of temporal complexity that characterize our world. Time includes breakdowns, repetitions, memories, and narratives that confuse a clear and open understanding of what it means to occupy time and space. In these thoughtful and powerful essays, Wood engages Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Derrida to demonstrate how repetition can preserve sameness and how creativity can interrupt time. Wood's original thinking about time charts a course through the breakdown in our trust in history and progress and poses a daring and productive way of doing phenomenology and deconstruction.

David Wood is Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University. His most recent books include The Step Back: Ethics and Politics after Deconstruction and Truth: A Reader (with José Medina).

Editorial Reviews

"Wood draws us into his dialogues with Heidegger and Derrida as he reflects on the time of beginningthe time of repetition, and the ineluctably plural temporality of human history, artworks, living things, and the cosmos." -Richard Polt, Xavier University
