Book Overview
A look at the human sense of time, a biological rhythm that may follow a different beat from that dictated by external, official, objective timepieces. Time and Place--Timeplace--is a continuum of the mind, as fundamental as the spacetime that may be the ultimate reality of the material world.Kevin Lynch's book deals with this human sense of time, a biological rhythm that may follow a different beat from that dictated by external, official, objective timepieces. The center of his interest is on how this innate sense affects the ways we view and change--or conserve, or destroy--our physical environment, especially in the cities.
