The author was initially tempted to entitle his book ‘Ontological spontaneities’. Afterwards, he lingered a moment over the variant ‘Spontaneous Ontology’, but rejected it remembering that, in fact, he had bet on Kant, on his fascinating demonstration that metaphysics can only be founded critically. Continuing along that line of thinking, he decided on ‘Spontaneous Metaphysics’. But, although he assumed this version to be correct, it was not complete, or rather, did not specify time as the object of this metaphysics. Therefore, he decided to use the title ‘The Spontaneous Metaphysics of Time’. But, since he ordered all this spontaneous work, once the book was complete, he finally agreed to accept that ‘The Ordering of the Spontaneous Metaphysics of Time’ was the most adequate title.
