Beschreibung

This book explores the relevance of classical ideas in the anthropology of time to the way we understand history, participate in the events around us, and experience our lives.The authors reflect on how we should interpret evidence about the distant past, and how far the structuring of social time is a human universal. They also consider whether anthropology itself has been so oriented to the present it has still to develop ways of dealing with temporality.
