Der erste Teil untersucht Husserls Zeitdenken in den frühen Zeitvorlesungen, den Bernauer Manuskripten und den C-Manuskripten. Der zweite Teil führt eine Auseinandersetzung mit dem Zeitdenken des frühen Heidegger, thematisiert jedoch auch dessen Entwicklung in Heideggers späteren Schriften. Der dritte Teil enthält eine umfassende Darstellung des Zeitdenkens von Ricoeur, die zugleich eine systematische Einheit in seinem Spätwerk aufweist.
Die philosophiehistorische Untersuchung der Phänomenologie der Zeit unter dem systematischen Leitfaden der Zeitaporien zeichnet zudem die Entwicklung der phänomenologischen Methode nach, die von einer ‚reinen’ Phänomenologie über eine hermeneutische bis zu einer kritisch-hermeneutischen Phänomenologie reicht.
