In this work F.W. von Herrmann, Professor Emeritus of Freiburg Universitat im Breisgau, demonstrates the direct influence of Augustine of Hippo on the thought of Husserl and Heidegger. The importance of the translation lies in its presentation of Augustine as a phenomenological thinker on the question of time to an audience unaware of his influence on the contemporary age.
