Item description for Time and Time Again: Reports from a Boundary of the Universe (Supplements to the Study of Time) by J. T. Fraser...

This work represents a guided tour to the interdisciplinary, integrated study of time. Through twenty-two connected essays, selected from the author's extensive writings, "Time and Time Again" advances new insights into understanding the nature of time seen through philosophy, the arts and letters, the sciences of matter, life, mind and society. Traditionally, attitudes to future, past, and present remained distinct for different cultures. But upon the globalizing earth, all cultural regions are now in instant by instant communication. There is a consequent turmoil about individual and collective identities and about value judgements, in all of which attitudes to time play crucial roles. The book explores this turmoil and, through its references, it also serves as a guide to the broadly spread literature about time.

Reviews - What do customers think about Time and Time Again: Reports from a Boundary of the Universe (Supplements to the Study of Time)?

A Canonical Work  Jun 23, 2007
"Time and Time Again: Reports from a Boundary of the Universe" deserves to be regarded as a canonical work for humankind's journey into the 21st century. I first discovered Julius Thomas Fraser through "Time, Passion and Knowledge" in the 1980's and have been amazed by the continuing depth and breadth of his thinking. Fraser was born in 1923 in Hungary and emigrated to the US in 1946. Let us hope that this 84 year old thinker continues to lead us and that his works will reach a broader audience. The world sorely needs J. T. Fraser : "History is now at all gates, everywhere and all the time. I do not mean agreement on the dates of one or other king. I mean an agreement about the origin and evolution of man, the origin and evolution of the universe."

In my view Fraser takes the standard raised by luminaries such as Kant, Goethe and Karl Popper and passes it to us as a challenge to seek truth and nothing less while at the same time recognising that absolutes do not await us at the end of our journey. Rather like Hermann Hesse's Glass Bead Game master, Julius Thomas Fraser plays with the Study of Time with intellectual rigor and lyrical beauty. Those who have the energy and integrity to join his intellectual journey will be better for it. We need more men like Fraser and fewer polemicists whether they be atheists or religious.

This book is beautifully bound with a cover of David Caspar Friedrich's "Wanderer Overlooking a Sea of Fog". We who are honest know that we are wanderers overlooking a sea of fog. Thinkers like Fraser can take us by the hand. This book will have pride of place in my library, alongside his other works.
