Show Summary Details


This chapter explains how time is “recovered” by using language and imaginative thoughts. It is seen that time is not really recovered as what someone expects, but it is compensated by “building” things that are different in each other (as in positively and negatively), and in the long view, both historically and poetically, to be together in time. As if knowledge is lost, it still can be relearned through its foundation of sensory thoughts and experiences present.

Keywords: time; language; imaginative thoughts; experiences; philosophy
