Hagglund's reading of "On Transience" argues that Freud's essay testifies to the double bind of desire (between chronophilia
and chronophobia) in the general theory of chronolibido, which then enables him to contest both Freud and Lacan's theories of the death drive on the basis of that bind.

It follows that there is chronophobia at the heart of every chronophilia and chronophilia at the heart of every chronophobia.
