This essay focuses on the generative experience of time. Together with the periodical rhythm of daily experience, generativity, bound to the periodical renewal of human generations, belongs to the original experience of time. After having discussed the analogies and the differences between the ephemeral, i.e. daily, and the generative experience of time, the author addresses the meaning of the generative experience of time in the communal life of the polis. Such an inquiry grounds the understanding of generativity as authentic experience of time, which is expressed in and through the love for another person, whose life has yet to begin. Giving birth, in this sense, is a choice for the freedom of a new beginning. The generative experience of time and the ethos that is grounded upon such an experience are finally considered in relation to the modern principle of subjectivity and its political relevance. How can democracy and the human rights, which are historically grounded upon the affirmation of the principle of subjectivity, be reconciled with the generative experience of time?
Keywords: Generative temporality, ephemeral temporality, authenticity, community, freedom.
