A rereading of St. Augustine's treatise about time (Confessions, chap. 13-28) is useful to interpret the phenomenology of time espoused by authors such Husserl, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty. But it is also useful to recall McTaggart's paradox which stems from the same point that characterizes Augustinian analyses: the distinction of past, present, future. Only with a clear understanding of the insufficiency of this point of departure to capture the basic properties of time as a structure of becoming or change can an analysis be justified to go from the point of view of lived time (in the sense of consciously experienced time) to the point of view of living-time.
