The duality of the present

Man and World 6 (3):293-301 (1973)
A reflection upon the experience of time reveals two data : An infinitely rapid flow of nows through the present, and the unmoving everpresence of the now in which I live. This all-pervasive duality of the present is implicit in many analyses of time, including Husse'rl's, but it needs to, be made ex- plicit. Although our data are, by the nature of the case, perfectly available for our inspection, their explication is not easy (as Augustine's frustration indicates). Consequently, the explication will be achieved slowly and per- haps indirectly, through arguments about the present and through illustrative metaphors. The following initial characterization will serve as. a referent for succeeding explications.
