Philosophy DictionaryKant Dictionary
[A23/B37] Generally, Kant defines time as "a determinate form...in which alone the intuition of inner states is possible", adding "and everything which belongs to inner states is therefore represented in relations of time....space and time are such that they belong only to the form of intuition, and therefore to the subjective constitution of our mind, apart from which they could not be ascribed to anything whatsoever". Kant asserts that time is an a priori intuition (a form of sensibility), that it is transcendentally ideal, that it is a condition to which all appearances must conform, that temporal determination depends on a spatial permanent, that we represent time by means of space, that time is necessary for the application of the categories, and that time is meaningless apart from application to objects.
Philosophy DictionaryTheological and Philosophical Dictionary
The spatialized or mechanized time of clocks and mechanical counters one, continuous, and infinite, having one irreversible dimension (i.e., the absolute time of classical physics ).
Experiential or "lived through" time, the succession of specious presents (units of lived-through presents rather than knife-edged presents), heteromorphic (each moment unique), essentially subjective but sharable in the group experiences of given cultures.
