Hidden Treasure - Sacred Time and the Search for Meaning

Book coverSacred Time and the Search for Meaning by Gary Eberle

Before time became commodified-before there were clocks and the schedules they engendered-we humans operated according to the subtle seasons of the days and seasons. Gary Eberle's study of what was lost when time came to be measured draws on philosophers from Aristotle to Heidegger and on theorists from Jung to Foucault to understand our culture of efficiency. This is one of those books that surprises you by showing you how little you know about something you took to be quite familiar.
