Description

Through a discussion of habit, myth, metaphor, and logic, the first section of this work is a criticism of method and the presuppositions underlying meaning. The author then presents a phenomenological meditation on clocks as metaphors of time, arguing that trees, hourglasses, mechanical clocks, and digital watches are particular metaphors of time and that they reveal beliefs about the meaning of time. Contents: include: Knowing What One Has Heard; Knowing The Time; and Digital Time as Myth.
