Sartre’s analyzing of Husserl’s lectures on inner time attention left him with one other point of view on temporality to be followed and significantly tailored as he had performed with Bergson’s point of view (and later Heidegger’s). forty four Husserl describes our adventure of the temporal “flow” as a chain of overlapping waves of “protentions” of the futural forty three forty four In a footnote, Sartre mentions Husserl’s “remarkable research” of man-made totality in his dialogue of wholes and elements in his 3rd Logical research §§ 17 and 18 (see TE one hundred ninety, n. 64).
