The paper aims at showing the basic features of the complex relationship between temporality and subjectivity in Husserl’s phenomenology. After a very brief description of the basic threefold features of time-consciousness described in the Time-Lectures, we will focus our attention on the issue of absolute subjectivity sketched in some passages of the text. This will allow investigating more extensively the main reflections carried out by Husserl in his researches of Bernau and in the later inquiries in the 1930s. In doing it, we will analyze the topic of the peculiar temporality of the ego and its relation with the consciousness as a flow paying particular attention to the role played by the notion of matter (hyle). As an outcome, we will show that the relationship between time and subjectivity is neither unilateral nor uniform, but rather it assumes many shapes of reference occurring at diverse levels of constitution. By means of a final general schema we will try to outline the basic forms of such multifaceted relationship.
