Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

On time, out of time, time out, time is money--if our vernacular is any indication, the concept of time has certainly infiltrated American culture. Does everybody in the world share the same perception of time? In A Geography of Time, psychologist Robert Levine puts time to the test by sending teams of researchers all over the world to measure everything from the average walking speed to the time it takes to buy a stamp at the post office. Levine scatters his findings among engaging accounts of his own encounters with the various perceptions of time in different cultures. From the history of clocks to how people tell time today, A Geography of Time is jam-packed with "timely" information.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Intellectual Abstraction 19. Januar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I enjoyed the book up until page 111. There the author compared a person being late for an appoinment in Brazil as being somehow comparable to the murder of women in Arab cultures by members of their own family. How those two situations are even faintly comparable is beyond me. If that woman who is being murdered in the name of "protecting an important social institution" were known by the author he might be able to disengage from intellectual abstraction and acknowledge the inhumanity and horror the murder of these women in the name of "honor" actually represents.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved Every Word! 4. Februar 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Loved every word, and maybe that's because my thoughts and experiences on the subject of "time" have been very similar to the author's. Levine chose his profession based on temporal wealth (same as me - and a friend - when we decided as travel agents that two weeks of vacation a year was not adequate and we needed jobs that paid a living wage while allowing for much more time off - voila - we both became teachers!), and he was blown away by the Brazilian concept of time while he was teaching down there in 1976 (one year before my own, very similar, experience there). Then, he quotes E.P. Thompson's, Time, work-discipline, and industrial capitalism (Past and Present, 38, 56-97) which I have been quoting ever since I read it in 1992 at UMass. I wish I would have written this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A winning combo of research/experience/insight 4. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I've been aware of Levine's work on "time" for more than a decade from articles and such, and I was thrilled to see this book. It's the best of its ilk: good qualitative research, heavily based on personal experience, written anecdotally and fascinatingly. I see this as akin to Deborah Tannen's excellent work in "You Just Don't Understand." If only more people were aware of how relative our cultural assumptions are, it might prevent some hair-tearing as we travel and also prevent some frustration here at home when we come upon others (even our own spouses....) who have another way of thinking/feeling about time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fun read 5. November 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
It is funnly and in very understandable language written. A researcher writing in such a way that his book can be read and understood by all. It helped me enormously in my thesis.
