After Heidegger, the phenomenology of listening is taken up by a number of
other philosophers, most notably Eugène Minkowski, Gaston Bachelard and
Jean-Luc Nancy. In his book Vers une cosmologie (1936), Minkowsky discussed
a new dynamic and vital category, a new property of the universe: reverberation … It
is as though the sound of a hunting horn, reverberating everywhere through its echo,
made the tiniest leaf, the tiniest wisp of moss shudder in a common movement and
transformed the whole forest, filling it to its limits, into a vibrating, sonorous

. Phenomenological approaches to temporality regard
time as emerging in our individual capacities for making sense of the world.
The father of phenomenology, Edward Husserl, focused on exploring what he
termed ‘internal time consciousness’ – suggesting that the temporal was a central and indivisible aspect of being human (Hoy, 2012). This idea of ‘being’ was
developed in Heideggerian thought through hermeneutics. Heidegger makes an
