bookcover
“This collection of thought-provoking essays addresses the relationship between contemporary times and technology, especially cybertechnology. In doing so, the essays demonstrate so very well Elliott Jaques' statement of the ultimate justification for studying time: ‘In the form of time is to be found the form of living.’ For by developing this collection, Hassan and Purser­and the essays' authors ­have made an important contribution to understanding both time and life in the early 21st century.”
­Allen C. Bluedorn, author of The Human Organization of Time: Temporal Realities and Experience, University of Missouri-Columbia

“The authors gathered here are among the leading theorists of the new shift in dimensional thought. Original, provocative, and sophisticated, their arguments will have a profound impact on social theorists and the emerging generation of digital scholars.”
­Sean Cubitt, University of Melbourne
