PEREIRA, Mateus Henrique  y  ARAUJO, Valdei Lopes de. Updatism, and Broad Present: A Brief Analysis of Contemporary Temporalities. Desacatos [online]. 2017, n.55, pp.12-27. ISSN 2448-5144.

We discuss some symptomatologies of our present time that claim substantial differences between the historicist-modern time, usually located in the 19th century, and an emergent “chronotope” or “regime of historicity”. From the chapter “temporality and everydayness”, of Being and Time, we argue that certain aspects of this new “chronotope” can be derived from Heidegger’s description of the temporality of “openness”, particularly of what he calls the inauthentic temporalizing. Since for Heidegger these forms of experience are ontological, we have to consider the meaning of their irrelevance in the descriptions of the “modern time” and its hypertrophy in the descriptions of the so-called novelty of our “chronotope”. We use the word “updatism” as an alternative to understanding our historical time.
