Abstract

This chapter begins its analysis with a careful look at the specious present and then surveys many of the psychological temporal structures that arise in creatures like us. It also examines memory, anticipation, and the building up of our experience through time, focusing especially on the contrast between time from an "embedded" perspective and time from an external perspective. The chapter ends with some suggestions for how this work may link to one's conception of the self and also the metaphysics of time. In particular, it claims that the apparent fixity of the past emerges from the adoption of the "embedded" perspective it describes.
