The depths of time in the world's memory of self. Mazis, G. A. In Morris, D. and Maclaren, K., editors, Time, Memory, Institution: Merleau-Ponty's New Ontology of Self, pages 43–68. Ohio University Press, Athens, 2015.

[first paragraph] The sense we have of who we are, for Merleau-Ponty, emerges from juxtaposi- tions of differing temporalities within the depths of perception, those fissures first described in the Phenomenology of Perception, yet not as prominently as they will be in his later writings. Prereflective experience as it unfolds within perception is not a matter of simple presentations, but rather is the coming forth of things, beings, events, and ultimately one's emerging sense of self as perceived in a complex present that not only has the progressively unfolding past and future within its depths, but also transgressive eruptions of varied temporal moments that flash forth— especially of the past—that are the un- noticed depths of perception and memory. In the introductory sections of the Phenomenology of Perception, in an opening sketch of perception, we are told that in my perceiving the table, I “resolutely contract the thickness of duration which has elapsed while I have been looking at it,” or, in other words, al- though I am not consciously displaced from my present attention in the regard
