Conceptual studies the study of the content use and evolution of abstract concepts in a society became very popular in the 1960s In the social sciences in particular they boomed often with a Marxist undertone especially in the German tradition less so in the Anglo Saxon area The discipline of philosophy also uickly felt the need to define concepts and notions precisely In almost all cases attempts were made to streamline the debate agreement on what a certain word or concept means is a clear basis for discussion otherwise you will be talking next to each other Of course it is not a simple job because the spectrum that a concept covers can be uite broad and it always appears that the angle from which you look at the concept is crucial for the interpretation That immediately means that you are also talking at a fairly abstract levelThis book published in the series The New Critical Idiom by Routledge tops the category of abstract concepts Because is there something elusive than time or temporality The classic reference is always to Augustine 5th century who wrote What then is time If no one asks me I know what it is If I wish to explain it to him who asks I do not know The author of this study Russel West Pavlov hasn t been put of by this dilemma He is a professor of literature studies in various places in Germany but also in South Africa and Australia and belongs to the Critical School of Marxist origin specialized in what is called Subaltern Studies the post colonial and post imperialist view from the South to the Western worldNo wonder then that West Pavlov in this book on temporalities is very critical of the concept of absolute universal and homogeneous time forced upon the world by Western modernity He contrasts this Western concept with the many other forms of temporality that still exist or that have been repressed by that universal temporality His analysis is erudite and enormously synthetic but at the same time how could it be otherwise very abstract What particularly appealed to me is that he approaches the concept of temporality from a systemic point of view At the same time his analysis also contains somewhat simplistic assumptions and his final conclusion remains very vague For an extensive review see my History account on Goodreads Histoire du Moyen-Orient presents a concise critical introduction to the treatment of time throughout literature Time and its L'Islam pour les nuls passage represent one of the oldest and most complex La question de Palestine, tome 1 : 1799-1921 philosophical subjects in art of all forms and Russell West Pavlov explains and interrogates the most important theories of temporality across a ra.

Islam et conception politique du monde post imperialist view from the South to the Western worldNo wonder then that West Pavlov in this book on temporalities is very critical of the concept of absolute universal and homogeneous time forced upon the world by Western modernity He contrasts this Western concept with the many other forms of temporality that still exist or that have been repressed by that universal temporality His analysis is erudite and enormously synthetic but at the same time how could it be otherwise very abstract What Les Barbaresques particularly appealed to me is that he approaches the concept of temporality from a systemic Sur la frontière point of view At the same time his analysis also contains somewhat simplistic assumptions and his final conclusion remains very vague For an extensive review see my History account on Goodreads

I was recommended this text in order to address my scepticism towards temporality and time as significant philosophical concepts However in the end it seems only to justify thoroughly my scepticism as it seems comprised of mostly romanticized nonsense and mystifications West Pavlov s account of time temporality etc seems grounded in so many vague euivocations and false euivalences between uite distinct concepts under the concept of temporality seems to lie variously anything vaguely connected to space time as a formal property of the universe clocks and particular means of measuring time narrative forms history in both the sense of Geschichte and Geschehen and seuentiality This indistinct mass of concepts are then claimed to offer a useful frame of analysis of social forms revealing its contradictions and paradoxes Yet many of these problems seem to arise due to the ambiguities of West Pavlov s concept of temporality Central to the work is Einstein s supposed destruction of newtonian absolute time However West Pavlov seems only able to advance the broader impact of this development by significantly misrepresenting Einstein s own theory and ignoring the whole concept of an inertial frame of reference Secondly that West Pavlov s argument is primarily advanced through literary examples and references to novels or other works of art is not clearly justified One is left wondering whether these narrative difficulties really constitute issues of time or merely issues of literary form What is the relationship between general relativity as a metaphysical conception of the universe and Salman Rushdies poetic references to the tick tock of clocksThirdly the inadeuacy of this concept temporality seems particularly apparent in West Pavlov s discussion of the Australian Mabo case in which by shifting the problem to one of conflicting temporalities the actual problem the nuance of meaning of ownership and its relationship to law is completely obfuscated and West Pavlov sees only paradoxical reuirements advanced by the high court Dr. Saoud et Mr. Djihad philosophical concepts However in the end it seems only to justify thoroughly my scepticism as it seems comprised of mostly romanticized nonsense and mystifications West Pavlov s account of time temporality etc seems grounded in so many vague euivocations and false euivalences between uite distinct concepts under the concept of temporality seems to lie variously anything vaguely connected to space time as a formal O Jérusalem property of the universe clocks and AMNESIQUES particular means of measuring time narrative forms history in both the sense of Geschichte and Geschehen and seuentiality This indistinct mass of concepts are then claimed to offer a useful frame of analysis of social forms revealing its contradictions and Histoire du Moyen-Orient paradoxes Yet many of these L'Islam pour les nuls problems seem to arise due to the ambiguities of West Pavlov s concept of temporality Central to the work is Einstein s supposed destruction of newtonian absolute time However West Pavlov seems only able to advance the broader impact of this development by significantly misrepresenting Einstein s own theory and ignoring the whole concept of an inertial frame of reference Secondly that West Pavlov s argument is La question de Palestine, tome 1 : 1799-1921 primarily advanced through literary examples and references to novels or other works of art is not clearly justified One is left wondering whether these narrative difficulties really constitute issues of time or merely issues of literary form What is the relationship between general relativity as a metaphysical conception of the universe and Salman Rushdies Les Femmes du prophète poetic references to the tick tock of clocksThirdly the inadeuacy of this concept temporality seems PENSEE ARABE particularly apparent in West Pavlov s discussion of the Australian Mabo case in which by shifting the Le mois le plus long.

REVIEW à Temporalities Russell West-Pavlov ï 9 REVIEW READ & DOWNLOAD Temporalities Nge of disciplinesThe author explores temporality's relationship with a diverse range of related concepts includinghistoriographypsychologygendereconomicspostmodernismpostcolonialismRussell West Pavlov examines time as a crucial part of the critical theories of Newton Freud Ricoeur Benjamin and explores the treatm. Russell West Pavlov starts with a definition of time with which I can almost completely agree There is no time outside of the multiple ongoing processes of material becoming the constant transformations often invisible that make up the life of apparently inert things Every thing is in fact a process all these processes taken together make up the world as the sum total of its immanent times This definition clearly has a too materialistic tone about that later but West Pavlov corrects that later in the book time is simply the world the cosmos life itself and therefore all the processes and interactions that the universe make into a complicated tangle all time is lived time in the sense that time is nothing but the vibrant pulsing dynamic or life itself a time immanent to the constantly changing being of things In a certain sense he is in line with the early thinking about time of Heraclitus and AristotleWhat is clear is that with this definition West Pavlov strongly opposes the idea that time is something external that it supersedes the world and the processes that are going on in it as a kind of container and can be distinguished from it No If everything in the universe is in a state of constant flux as claimed by Heraclitus then there is no separate time outside the dynamic processual becomings of things That dynamic process is temporality itself The main thesis of West Pavlov is that the current prevailing notion of absolute universal homogeneous and linear time as it has set the tone in the modern world especially since Newton does not do justice to that complicated tangle of temporalities In fact it cannibalizes them and this entire book is one big proof of that The gradual streamlining of temporality down to universal linear time as the self evident calibration of human existence has repressed and elided other possible temporal structuring of individual and global existence It inherently claims There is no alternative Such elisions have culminated in many cases in wholesale destruction or alternative encodings of existence and concomitant communal practicesFrom his background as a specialist in Subaltern Studies West Pavlov regularly refers to the example of the temporality of the Australian aborigines that has been almost completely pushed aside by the arrival of Westerners His vision also has a strong ecological accent for which he is particularly inspired by Bruno Latour he repeatedly stresses that a healthy approach to temporality must include both organic and non organic lifeWhat particularly appealed to me is that West Pavlov has clearly immersed himself in the world of soft system thinking He uotes Gregory Bateson only once but it is clear that his thinking really exudes the atmosphere of what Bateson tried to express in for example Mind and Nature And in some chapters the influence of system thinking is clearly tangible Things are thus caught in a constantly shifting euilibrium between autopoesis and entropy We tend to think of death as the endpoint but in terms of autopoesis no process ever ends but merely shades about into new processes or a different sort Beginnings and ends are both strategies for containing change by establishing narratives that are either determined from the point of departure or pre programmed by the point of arrival Yet there are also some down sides to this book The attentive reader may have already noticed it in the uotes West Pavlov uses the notions of time and temporality interchangeably almost as synonyms And he gives strong arguments for that But in my opinion there is a certain conceptual distinction between the two the notion of temporality is related to the experienced time the special time frame that is connected to very concrete things processes interactions both material and immaterial In addition the notion of time remains a container concept for me which as West Pavlov points out is of course very connected to the different temporalities but at the same time also distinguished from them That already indicates that the concept of a homogeneous universal time is not just a delusionWest Pavlov himself must over constantly admit that the notion of homogeneous universal time continues to dominate our thinking and forces the various temporalities into a subordinate role The author explains that with a strongly Marxist colored reading the Western absolute Newtonian era is a capitalist invention it has come to dominate the world in the wake of imperialist capitalism and is still doing so than ever in our globalized late capitalist time I m having a hard time with that rather easy explanation Mind you of course there is a connection between the dominance of universal linear time thinking and the rise of industrial capitalism but the categories in which West Pavlov expresses himself are in my opinion too deterministic and simplisticThere are other shortcomings in this book In his chapter on gender subjectivity for example he connects linear time with a masculine approach and cyclical generative and creative time with a feminine maternal one I thought we had passed this kind of simplistic thinking a long time ago His fierce criticism of postmodernism as a disguised continuation of modernism does of course touch ground but in the end it does not add much to the discussion about temporalityBecause the key uestion is then what is his alternative surely if he concedes that homogeneous universal and linear time continues to dominate our thinking This book clearly falls short in that department It seems as if West Pavlov believes that simply unmasking the myth of linear thinking is sufficient enough This results in for example almost inimitable abstract reasoning We must rewind this process reverting from the notion of reified things within segmented time to a notion or immanent time embodied in the dynamic processes of becoming inherent in all beings This counter intuitive move reverses a historical progression in which fluid processes have been attributed end stop characteristics to make them appear as bounded entities within a segmented temporal environment The seuence of re conceptualization reverses the seuence of historical mystification I do follow what Western Pavlov means by that but what is lacking here are incentives to translate this into concrete modelsIn his chapter on postcolonial temporalities he does a prudent attempt where he proposes a model of a forest instead of the linearly connected universal time he argues for entangled multiplanar temporalities with another reference to the Australian aboriginals And in his final conclusion he continues Producing performative models of a multiplicity or immanent space times would contribute to restoring ethical relationships not only between human actors but also with the many natural actants of the animal vegetable and mineral environment Such instantiations of the experimental humanities would understand themselves not as meditations about time but as exemplifications from the creative agency or immanent temporalities themselves The very temporality of the experimental humanities would resonate with the non linear unpredictable dynamism of the universe itself in its becoming Again this touches ground but what do you buy with itConclusion the critical analysis by West Pavlov about the failure of the modernist notion of universal linear time is absolutely pertinent and his plea for taking other diverse temporalities seriously is justified Only he does not succeed in proposing a sound practically applicable alternative and he gets stuck in an abstract discourse In opposition to this I find Penelope Corfield s attempt in Time and the Shape of History with her proposal to combine a kind of triple approach long continuity slow changes and disruptions a much pragmatic and feasible approach even though also this model has its limitations Finally I must say that I find it very incomprehensible that in a conceptual study on temporalities no reference is made to Reinhart Koselleck nor Fran ois Hartog both epigones of temporality studies
