The question of the beginning and end of time raises philosophical problems which lead into the core of J.T. Fraser’s thinking. In reference to some features of his work one can show the relevance of metaphysical ideas like the concept of an ontological plurality of times and especially the idea of an absolute past. This idea has been developed in systematic form by the German idealist thinker Schelling. Schelling speaks of a reality which is in itself neither temporal nor eternal but has limitations which only in relation to the time of our universe are turned into a temporal structure. In this view, which is also important for the understanding of current phenomenological positions (Lévinas, Marion), there is a second time, a “temps perdu,” which is equidistant from any new event in our universe including its possible beginning and end.
