Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter summarizes philosophical perspectives on time. Our choice starts from Plato, includes Chinese aspects, but also deals with modern approaches by Paul Valéry and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, for example. The point of starting with philosophy is that time has always been a deep concern in philosophy. It is fascinating that from early philosophical days, there has been a consciousness of the double nature of time: its linear objective and its selfreferential subjective reality.
