The question is examined whether the distinction, familiar from other contexts, between egocentric and objective representations can be extended to time. A number of objections to the notion of an objective, or non-perspectival, representation of time are considered and criticised. It is argued, both that we can make sense of such a representation, and that it plays an important role in an understanding of memory. Finally, a connection is drawn between this issue and the debate over the tenseless theory of time.
