How does the perception of time differ from culture to culture? Do people in Bali have the same ideas of the past, present and future as people in Britain? What can different neurological disorders tell us about how our brain thinks about time? Is there a politics of temporality? All these fascinating questions, and many more are discussed on tonight’s Inquiry when we talk with writer and essayist EVA HOFFMAN. Ms Hoffman is a self-confessed chronophobiac and a chronophiliac and her new book TIME is one of the best discussions and meditations of this big subject that obsesses all of us, especially as we get older.
