Interpretation of Time
The vast physical and metaphysical subject, the definition of time, its origin and its nature, and from there, the multiple approaches to apprehend it, have constantly nourished human concerns for millennia: whether it is a question of making an objective time necessary for social organization (to establish calendar, dates...), but also of measuring a subjective time, an inner dimension of our consciousness. The flow of the most widespread time in monotheistic societies proceeds from a horizontal reading, dating the historical events before and after a year zero which would be the birth of Jesus Christ. Archaeologists, for their part, reason by stratification, adopting a vertical reading close to the Chinese conception.
