This article raises the question: to what extent does future itself have a history? In reviewing thetheories of Niklas Luhmann and Michel Foucault, modal time (past, present, future) will be deontologizedand attributed to the operations of an observer. Luhmann’s discussion of Edmund Husserl’sPhenomenology of Inner Time Consciousness and Michel Foucault’s critical appraisal of ImmanuelKant’s Transcendental Idealism provide arguments for a temporalization of time. Hence the historicalsemantics and political technologies involved in the construction of future horizons become ofmajor interest.
