Annette Baier's target is to make experience of David Hume's Treatise as a complete. Hume's relations motto, which seems on his bookplate, used to be "True to the tip.

Sample text

Pure duration is a necessarily marginal concept, an unexecutable postulate, like its counterpart immortality. ’ The reason for this is the necessity to assume the existence of a symbol-free life form below memory combined with the impossibility to reach below memory. ) Every symbolization has to step out of duration because: (a) an experience is grasped as Now and Thus which is transcended in the mere stream of duration. (b) Unity (homogeneity) is posited in place of the manifold (heterogeneity).

We will try to demonstrate that the epistemological problem in this form has its solution in its presuppositions. That means, that the solution becomes possible at all only when we are sure of our belonging to the realm of duration as well as to that of the Extended. Therefore, we do not ask: how enters the extended object into my unextended apperception? How turns that which becomes and passes away into an Existing? But, at first, we ask: which path is traversed by the image when moving from pure duration to concept?

Schutz Similarly, all that which is observed, felt, and enjoyed during the experience of a summer evening, remains closely bound to this experience in its unity—even though only for its duration. That which is remembered differentiates itself into mountain and lake, sun and tree, ringing of the bell and conversation, movement of the rowboat and color of the woods only for the consciousness which turns back (to an experience after it has passed away, HRW) and now forms sharply delimited images.
