Nathan Widder, Reflections on Time and Politics, University Park, PA: Pennsylvania State University Press, 2008.
In Reflections on Time and Politics, Widder works toward an understanding of time not as movement but rather structure, as the scaffolding upon which we erect political and politicized identities. Yet such a structure of identity, he argues, nevertheless conceals the differential field of selfhood(s). In effect, we perceive ourselves and each other as coherent totalities when, in effect, we are actually a mass of contradictions.
