Telling Time takes up Heidegger's idea of a 'phenomenological chronology'. It poses the question of the possibility of a phenomenological language that would be given over to the 'temporality of being' and the finitude of existence.
The book combines a discussion of approaches to language in the philosophical tradition with readings of Husserl on temporality and the early and late texts of Heidegger's on logic, truth and the nature of language. As with Heidegger's "deconstruction" of logic and metaphysics, Dastur's work is also informed by Derrida's deconstruction of the metaphysics of presence and Nietzschean genealogy.
