Scholars in the arts, the humanities, and the sciences offer a multi-faceted investigation of the fundamental human experience of temporality—from reproductive politics and temporal logic to music and theater, from law to sustainability, from memory to the Vikings.
Origins and Futures: Time Inflected and Reflected offers an interdisciplinary approach to two fundamental often opposing concepts of time. The volume features both research on specific texts and authors as well as conceptual disciplinary reflections in the spirit of an integrated study of time.
Edited by Jo Alyson Parker, Michael Crawford and Paul Harris
Time and Memory comprises essays that deal with the nature of memory as a medium that reflects the passage of time, as a tool for the manipulation of time, and as a reflection of the creative and destructive impulse.
The essays in this volume all originated at the 2001 conference of the International Society for the Study of Time. The theme 'Time and Uncertainty' sounds redundant, but the contributions try to come to terms with the irreducible openness of time and the impermanence of life.
