9781585423064: A Sideways Look at Time

A brilliant and poetic exploration of the way that we experience time in our everyday lives.

Why does time seem so short? How does women's time differ from men's? Why does time seem to move slowly in the countryside and quickly in cities? How do different cultures around the world see time? In A Sideways Look at Time, Jay Griffiths takes readers on an extraordinary tour of time as we have never seen it before.

With this dazzling and defiant work, Griffiths introduces us to dimensions of time that are largely forgotten in our modern lives. She presents an infectious argument for other, more magical times, the diverse cycles of nature, of folktale or carnival, when time is unlimited and on our side. This is a book for those who suspect that there's more to time than clocks.

Irresistible and provocative, A Sideways Look at Time could change the way we view time-forever.

Description du livre TarcherPerigee, 2004. Soft cover. État : New. Jay Griffiths has definitely got a "sideways" take on time- for comparison, it touches lightly on Western culture's since of time- basically, time is money and on to native cultures who don't have much need for exact chronological time. In the Introduction that can be seen in the "Look Inside" feature here at amazon, Griffiths warns the prospective reader that this is a cultural trip through the concept of time and if one is more interested in the physics, chronological or Western concept of time, they might not be interested in this book. Either way, I think everybody would enjoy Griffiths' variations on time- how about "woman's time" for instance? No time to waste?- why not? It could be productive.
