The Emergence of Cinematic Time
  • Author : Mary Ann Doane
  • Publisher : Harvard University Press
  • Release Date : 2002
  • Category: Performing Arts
  • Pages : 288
  • ISBN Code: 9780674007291

Summary: Hailed as the permanent record of fleeting moments, the cinema emerged at the turn of the nineteenth century as an unprecedented means of capturing time--and this at a moment when disciplines from physics to philosophy, and historical trends from industrialization to the expansion of capitalism, were transforming the very idea of time. In a work that itself captures and reconfigures the passing moments of art, history, and philosophy, Mary Ann Doane shows how the cinema, representing the singular instant of chance and ephemerality in the face of the increasing rationalization and standardization of the day, participated in the structuring of time and contingency in capitalist modernity. At this book's heart is the cinema's essential paradox: temporal continuity conveyed through "stopped time," the rapid succession of still frames or frozen images. Doane explores the role of this paradox, and of notions of the temporal indeterminacy and instability of an image, in shaping not just cinematic time but also modern ideas about continuity and discontinuity, archivability, contingency and determinism, and temporal irreversibility. A compelling meditation on the status of cinematic knowledge, her book is also an inquiry into the very heart and soul of modernity.

Time of Death, Decomposition and Identification
  • Author : Jay Dix,Michael Graham
  • Publisher : CRC Press
  • Release Date : 1999-12-07
  • Category: Law
  • Pages : 120
  • ISBN Code: 9781420048285

Summary: A postmortem X-ray of a male homicide victim reveals a bullet lodged next to his spine. That he was shot is clear. How recently? is what death investigators must determine. The answer: the absence of scar tissue surrounding the bullet proves the victim had been recently shot. And while the average person may find tattoos to be creative and aesthetic, to the trained death investigator, they can actually be the key to aiding in the eventual identification of a body. They say the dead can't speak. But in the fascinating field of forensic pathology, the deceased can tell an elaborate story, especially when death investigators know what clues to look for. The first volume in the new Forensic Pathology Atlases: Causes of Death Series, this book takes an in-depth look at the determination of the time of death, postmortem changes, and identification. In TIME OF DEATH, DECOMPOSITION AND IDENTIFICATION, you'll learn through the extensive use of photographs and discussion how estimating the time of death can rarely be accomplished with scientific accuracy. You'll learn about the numerous changes the body undergoes after death, and how positive and probable identifications are made. For death investigators, law enforcement officers, attorneys, and anyone else involved in forensic death cases, TIME OF DEATH, DECOMPOSITION AND IDENTIFICATION is a "must have" resource.

Time in Language
  • Author : Wolfgang Klein
  • Publisher : Psychology Press
  • Release Date : 1994
  • Category: Language Arts & Disciplines
  • Pages : 243
  • ISBN Code: 9780415104128

Summary: Examines the ways in which time is reflected in natural language - considering tense, aspect, the inherent lexical features of the verb, and various types of temporal adverb.This book looks at the various ways in which time is reflected in natural language. All natural languages have developed a rich repetoire of devices to express time, but linguists have tended to concentrate on tense and aspect, rather than discourse principles. Klein considers the four main ways in which language expresses time - the verbal categories of tense and aspect; inherent lexical features of the verb; and various types of temporal adverbs. Klein looks at the interaction of these four devices and suggests new or partly new treatments of these devices to express temporality.

Time, Space, and Society
  • Author : A. Kellerman
  • Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media
  • Release Date : 1989-02-28
  • Category: History
  • Pages : 128
  • ISBN Code: 9780792301233

Summary: Time and space are two of the most basic dimensions of human life. They envelop all human beings from birth to death. As such, they provide the context for human existence. At the same time, however, time and space also serve as major influencing factors in mankind's actions. Hence, a vast literature has developed on time and space as separate dimensions, and recently on time-space as joint dimensions. Interestingly enough, the social connotations of time and space have mostly been studied with the individual human being in mind. The more societal significance of time and space, whether separately or jointly, have been relatively neglected. It is the purpose of this volume to help fill this lacuna through discussions on some of the many junctions of time, space, and society at large. The discussion will naturally involve concepts and findings from more than just one discipline -- notably, geography, sociology, social history and political science. It is, thus, obvious that the topic may be highlighted from several perspectives. Given my own education and work, the approach will lean more to the geographical perspective. Geography has a special merit as an integrating framework for the study of time, space, and society. It is a discipline that has space at the center of its raison d'etre and, as such, has always striven for integration, holism and comprehensiveness.

Time and Learning in the Special Education Classroom
  • Author : Libby Goodman
  • Publisher : SUNY Press
  • Release Date : 1990-01-01
  • Category: Education
  • Pages : 255
  • ISBN Code: 9780791403716

Summary: Focusing on the relationship between time use and learning results, this book explores the instructional processes in special education classrooms. The text emphasizes teacher control of time resources at the classroom level, instructional management strategies that conserve and enhance instructional time, and the efficient and effective use of learning time to enhance student performance outcomes. The dual dimensions of time and task are incorporated throughout the text to communicate the essential message that time and the appropriate use of time go hand in hand in the classroom. Adequate time alone is a necessary but insufficient condition for maximal learning to occur. Time and Learning in the Special Education Classroom strikes a balance between research and application to achieve a scholarly yet readable text, relevant for both pre-service and in-service teachers, supervisors, principals, administrators, and teacher educators.

  • Release Date : 2009-04-28
  • Category: Business & Economics
  • Pages : 577
  • ISBN Code: 1441903194

Summary: This paperback edition is a reprint of the 1991 edition. Time Series: Theory and Methods is a systematic account of linear time series models and their application to the modeling and prediction of data collected sequentially in time. The aim is to provide specific techniques for handling data and at the same time to provide a thorough understanding of the mathematical basis for the techniques. Both time and frequency domain methods are discussed, but the book is written in such a way that either approach could be emphasized. The book is intended to be a text for graduate students in statistics, mathematics, engineering, and the natural or social sciences. It contains substantial chapters on multivariate series and state-space models (including applications of the Kalman recursions to missing-value problems) and shorter accounts of special topics including long-range dependence, infinite variance processes, and nonlinear models. Most of the programs used in the book are available in the modeling package ITSM2000, the student version of which can be downloaded from http://www.stat.colostate.edu/~pjbrock/student06.


Time Structures
  • Author : Elzbieta Hajnicz
  • Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media
  • Release Date : 1996-03-20
  • Category: Computers
  • Pages : 244
  • ISBN Code: 9783540609414

Summary: The notion of time plays an important role in modern science. In computer science and artificial intelligence, the parameter of time is of particular importance, e.g. for planning robot activity, natural language processing, and time-varying scene analysis. This work investigates the relationship between classic, first-order theories of point- and interval-based time structures, modal logics of corresponding structures, and their algorithmic representations. To make this relationship complete, a formalisation of Allen's famous algorithm, applicable to various structures of time, is presented along with its translation to modal logics. All in all, the book is a competent and comprehensive analysis of logical descriptions and algorithmic representations of time structures.

What, Then, is Time?
  • Author : Eva T. H. Brann
  • Publisher : Rowman & Littlefield
  • Release Date : 1999
  • Category: Philosophy
  • Pages : 237
  • ISBN Code: 9780847692934

Summary: 'What is time?' Well-known philosopher and intellectual historian, Eva Brann mounts an inquiry into a subject universally agreed to be among the most familiar and the most strange of human experiences. Brann approaches questions of time through the study of ten famous texts by such thinkers as Plato, Augustine, Kant, Husserl, and Heidegger, showing how they bring to light the perennial issues regarding time. She also offers her independent reflections. Examining the three phases of time, past, present, and future, she argues that neither external time nor the time of the human past is real: the one is a comparison of motions and the other a projection of memory. She concludes that true time is internal and has its origin in the imaginative structure of memory and expectation. Throughout her rich and original study, Brann never fudges the central fact that time is a mystery.



The Tenseless Theory of Time
  • Author : W.L. Craig,William Lane Craig
  • Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media
  • Release Date : 2000-11-30
  • Category: Philosophy
  • Pages : 256
  • ISBN Code: 9780792366355

Summary: The central question in the philosophy of time is whether time is tensed or tenseless, viz., whether the moments of time are objectively past, present or future, or whether they are ordered merely by the tenseless temporal relations earlier than, simultaneous with, and later than. In this book and the companion volume The Tensed Theory of Time: A Critical Examination, Craig undertakes the first thorough appraisal of the arguments for and against the tensed and tenseless theories of time. The discussions range widely over issues in the philosophy of language, phenomenology, relativity theory, philosophy of space and time, metaphysics, and philosophy of religion. The Tenseless Theory of Time sets out to discover whether the ineliminability of tense from language and our experience of tense warrants a belief in its objective ontological status, or whether the defeaters raised by McTaggart's paradox and the Myth of Passage serve to undermine any warrant that the tensed theory of time may be supposed to enjoy.


Time and the Image
  • Author : Carolyn Bailey Gill
  • Publisher : Manchester University Press
  • Release Date : 2000
  • Category: Art
  • Pages : 206
  • ISBN Code: 9780719058141

Summary: This new collection of essays questions the old orthodoxies of the image as a formal object. The contributors take note of the new condition of the image and its intersection with time and suggest new ways of configuring the relationship between them. Ranging widely over philosophy, psychoanalysis, and literary studies, as well as art history and media studies, the essays include studies of photography--the idea of a still as bound to a structure of the past haunting the present; sculpture--for example, unpacking a famous piece such as the Laocoon into distinct layers of temporality; painting--for example, through an illuminating discussion of Manet, and a discussion of the merits of a Freudian understanding of blocked or repressed memory against the Prousian/Leibniz model of memory as a crystal image.


Spectral Analysis of Time-series Data
  • Author : Rebecca M. Warner
  • Publisher : Guilford Press
  • Release Date : 1998-05-22
  • Category: Social Science
  • Pages : 225
  • ISBN Code: 9781572303386

Summary: This book provides a thorough introduction to methods for detecting and describing cyclic patterns in time-series data. It is written both for researchers and students new to the area and for those who have already collected time-series data but wish to learn new ways of understanding and presenting them. Facilitating the interpretation of observations of behavior, physiology, mood, perceptual threshold, social indicator variables, and other responses, the book focuses on practical applications and requires much less mathematical background than most comparable texts. Using real data sets and currently available software (SPSS for Windows), the author employs extensive examples to clarify key concepts. Topics covered include research design issues, preliminary data screening, identification and description of cycles, summary of results across time series, and assessment of relations between time series. Also considered are theoretical questions, problems of interpretation, and potential sources of artifact.


Leibniz’s Metaphysics of Time and Space
  • Author : Michael Futch
  • Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media
  • Release Date : 2008-04-05
  • Category: Science
  • Pages : 205
  • ISBN Code: 9781402082375

Summary: Leibniz’s metaphysics of space and time stands at the centre of his philosophy and is one of the high-water marks in the history of the philosophy of science. In this work, Futch provides the first systematic and comprehensive examination of Leibniz’s thought on this subject. In addition to elucidating the nature of Leibniz’s relationalism, the book fills a lacuna in existing scholarship by examining his views on the topological structure of space and time, including the unity and unboundedness of space and time. It is shown that, like many of his more recent counterparts, Leibniz adopts a causal theory of time where temporal facts are grounded on causal facts, and that his approach to time represents a precursor to non-tensed theories of time. Futch then goes on to situate Leibniz’s philosophy of space and time within the broader context of his idealistic metaphysics and natural theology. Emphasizing the historical background of Leibniz’s thought, the book also places him in dialogue with contemporary philosophy of science, underscoring the enduring philosophical interest of Leibniz’s metaphysics of time and space.

Time and Exteriority
  • Author : John Protevi
  • Publisher : Bucknell University Press
  • Release Date : 1994
  • Category: Philosophy
  • Pages : 218
  • ISBN Code: 9780838752296

Summary: Time and Exteriority: Aristotle, Heidegger, Derrida provides an in-depth look at a crucial issue in the history of metaphysics: the relation of time and space. Covering material from ancient Greek philosophy and contemporary European works, the author explains the conceptual presuppositions behind the readings of Aristotle on time by Martin Heidegger and Jacques Derrida, perhaps the two foremost continental philosophers of this century. Heidegger always pointed to Aristotle's Physics as the Grundbuch of Western philosophy, and he devoted special attention to Aristotle's treatise on time, which he declared set the outlines within which all future treatments of time worked. In the early Heidegger, however, time and space, temporality and spatiality, are not co-ordinate, and Time and Exteriority uses this subordination of space to time as its clue. Derrida, Heidegger's great contemporary interlocutor, has been similarly occupied with the question of time and space. Chapter 1 of Time and Exteriority explicates the implicit conceptual scheme of Derrida's writings on Husserl, an "economy of exteriority." For Derrida, then, time and space, temporality and exteriority, must be thought "economically," not in a relation of subordination, as in Heidegger. Chapter 2 examines the notion of exteriority at work in Aristotle's theory of change. The time chapters of the Physics receive special attention in the book, anticipating the readings of Heidegger and Derrida in highlighting time and exteriority. Chapter 3 reads "Ousia and Gramme," in which Derrida reads Heidegger's reading of Aristotle's determination of Hegel's theory of time. Chapters 4 and 5 are devoted to sustained readings of Heidegger's Being and Time and Basic Problems of Phenomenology in light of the economy of exteriority. The conclusion advances a reading of Aristotelian generation that provides a model for time/space that need not ignore or suppress the economy of exteriority.



Psychology of Time

  • Category: Psychology
  • Pages : 435
  • ISBN Code: 0080469779

Summary: Recent developments in the field of timing and time perception have not simply multiplied the number of relevant questions regarding psychological time, but they have also helped to provide more answers and open many fascinating avenues of thought. "Psychology of Time" brings together cutting-edge presentations of many of the main ideas, findings, hypotheses and theories that experimental psychology provides to the field of timing and psychological time.The contributors, selected for their ability to address various specific questions, were asked to discuss what is known in their field and what avenues remain to be explored. As a result, this book should point readers in the right direction and guide them to reflect on the various and most fundamental issues on psychological time. It offers a balanced integration of old and sometimes neglected findings and more recent empirical advances, all presented within the scope of the critical sub-fields of psychological time in experimental psychology.
