(Project: Chronos) Introduction

Project Chronos will be an open-ended project exploring different theories of time in a nutshell.  

Time is an essential and definitive aspect of life, but what is time? Is time another dimension, which could be travelled through? Is time linear or cyclical? Is time a physical substance, a property, or an integral frame of our conscious experience?

I have always been fascinated by the concept of time, and by the many different ways of understanding time. This project will comprise a series of short posts giving a self-contained outline of different theories of time.

Among others, I intend to post further on the following sub-topics:

  • Ancient Buddhist theories of time
  • Ancient Greek theories of time
  • Bergson on time
  • Kant on time
  • Clocks and calendars
