Schutz, music, and temporality: A Wittgensteinian assessment

Philosophy of the Social Sciences 24 (4):439-457 (1994)
In his account of musical interaction and temporality, Schutz's outer-inner distinction appears to capture a component of everyday experience. But engagement with Wittgensteinian philosophy reveals Schutz's false contrast between literal and metaphorical components of language, a series of philosophical confusions stemming from reifications of mental verbs, and the attribution of genuine duration to phenomena that have life as linguistic objects. Consequently, Schutz's intended account of social interaction comes to rest upon a radically private concept of the subject. A sociology of time, it is concluded, can avoid these conceptual traps by attending to the linguistic component of temporality.
