‘The appearance of time,’ explores the conceptual and theoretical framework that is expanded upon throughout the book. The temporal dimension is central to the lives of human beings, from diurnal cycle to our own internal body time. Living time, whether experienced or representational, is the framework of our lives. In the absence of ceremony and ritual in postmodernity, the temporal dimension provides a meaningful structure to the potential sense of chaos. Timescape, time embedded and time embodied, and the various measures or non-measures of time are discussed in this chapter. Time, like much in this book, is introduced from a multidisciplinary perspective that ranges from sociology to feminist studies, to philosophy.

Keywords:   conceptual framework, theoretical framework, temporal dimension, diurnal cycle, postmodernity, timescape, time embedded, time embodied
