Tempo, Ritmo e Filosofia
| STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2011 - 3
Time, as it’s well known, is a central key question in philosophy. This contribution sketches an
original perspective to resume and classify the different ways in which subject can do experience
of time. The first is perception of time (how I feel time?); then we have measure, that is the social,
collective and objective dimension of time. Third, we have that dimension which the author calls
«figure of time», that shows a different kind of time objectivity, that is different from measure
because qualified by affection. The author tries also to answer another question: does the peculiar
way of thinking of philosophers reveal a temporality of its own?
Key words: time, rhythm, history, philosophy, meditation.
