Peter Osborne's The Politics of Time feeds the philosophy of history its tail, advancing a theory of temporality grounded in social relations and the totalizing formations of the present. Bridging Ricoeur's account of narrative, the conflicting theories of death and recognition in Hegel, Heidegger, Lacan, and the materialist insights of Walter Benjamin and Henri Lefebvre, Osborne traces the intricate relationship of historical periodization to the time of lived experience. Finally, testing the political weight of tradition, modernism and the modern, postmodernism, the contemporary, and other temporal signposts, he looks to the avant-garde for a model of intervention into the structures of time that pervade the everyday.

`This study makes strikingly apparent the centrality of the philosophy of time for ongoing debates in modernity and postmodernity ... a remarkably intelligent book.'--- Susan Buck Morss
