Time: A. Time is a dimension in which events are arranged. At first, no direction (before / after) is defined with this. A time direction can be obtained in the context of the Second Principle of Thermodynamics. However, a global framework must be assumed, within which there is an increase of entropy. The assumption of increasing entropy does not apply to the comparison of local events. B. In the case of the subjective time, the question of direction is less problematic. The perceived time direction is expressed by the learned use of the terms "before" and "after". See also time arrow, time travel, time reversal, symmetry, duration, space time, relativity theory, four-dimensionalism, world lines.

Jacques Lacan on Time - Dictionary of Arguments

Pagel I 72f
Time/Lacan: Futurum exactum: "It will have been". Lacan: A finished future: here the historicality that is realized in the subject accentuates. (impossible completion of perfection that has always been already.) ((s) Cf. S. Beckett "Happy Days": "This will have been a happy day!").
I 123
Time/Lacan: is spatialized as a product of labor. (LacanVs). This creates the illusion as if an already existing truth is found in this space.
I 127
Time/Unconscious: "Anticipated retrospective: "it will have been."
>Psychological theories on unconscious.
"Logical time"/Lacan: in the transference appears unnoticeably a past. The analyst marks the opening.
I 133
Language/Lacan: Lets the immediate present disappear in the "sign".
I 134
Return from the future: the repressed does not return from the past, but from the future.
"Anticipated retrospection"/Lacan: here the finished past is not realized, also not the perfect in the sense of an already completed present, but the second future of what "it has been for, what it is going to be."
