Time's constitutive malleability

Lecture at the CASYS 2011 conference held in Liège, August 9th, 2011. Abstract:

Objective constitution asks for subjective time experience. Drawing this central proposition from contemporary film studies and Andrey Tarkovsky’s writings on film, the lecture will juxtapose this idea with the Kantian concepts of time and unity of apperception—albeit the important difference of level of discourse. The advanced conception is indeed crucial in the understanding of the genesis of meaning: through the peculiar kind of experiences of the ‘moving image’ the lecture attempts to recast the problem. However, this will confront several difficulties in different disciplines, from the enduring Kantian starting point of constraining metaphysics, to the development of anticipative systems and, prominently, the problem of time in epistemology.
