David Carr on History, Time, and Place

Human Studies 29 (4):445-462 (2006)
This essay begins by situating the work of David Carr in relation to the reception of phenomenology in the United States. It addresses Carr's early contributions to the philosophy of history, especially as this topic emerges in Husserl's middle and later writings. The idea of point of view as this emerges in Carr's own writings on history is examined, with special attention to differences between its spatial and temporal instantiations. Carr's emphasis on the primacy of temporality in human experience is contrasted with an approach that is more appreciative of the role of place in this experience. It is suggested that place offers an important alternative to time as a basis for the understanding of history and narrative
