Theory Out of Bounds #0006: Capital Times: Tales from the Conquest of Time Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Time is money, Benjamin Franklin once said, and in a highly original reading of European philosophy, Eric Alliez shows us how true this adage is. A history of the philosophy of time, and a comparison of ways of conceiving the temporal, this book is nothing less than an attempt to unravel the theoretical frameworks that have given time its shape in Western civilization.

Book News Annotation:

Offers a history of the philosophy of time and a comparison of the ways of conceiving the temporal, concentrating on European philosophy and its impact on the connection between time and money in Western civilization. Analyzes the social and political processes involved in conceptions of time in ancient and medieval tradition and sets them in the context of contemporary political and philosophical debates centering on the thought of Kant and Marx.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
