Psychology Press, 1996 - Počet stran: 267
Drawing on the work of Heidegger, Thomas develops a way of writing about the past in which time is seen as central to the emerging identities of people and things, and the temporal structures of humans, places and artefacts as radically similar.Throughout its history, time, material culture and human identity have been central concerns of archaeology. These issues are fundamental to the discipline, and yet they are rarely explicitly discussed together.Time, Culture and Identity questions the modern western distinctions between nature/culture, mind/body, and object/subject, arguing that in important senses the temporal structures of human beings, artefacts and places are radically similar. Drawing on the philosophy of Martin Heidegger, Julian Thomas develops a way of writing about the past in which time is seen as central to the emergence of the identities of people and objects.
