Book Description

19 Dec 1998 0415197872 978-0415197878 New Ed
Time, Culture and Identity questions the modern western distinctions between:
* nature and culture
* mind and body
* object and subject.

Drawing on the philosophy of Martin Heidegger, Julian Thomas develops a way of writing about the past in which time is seen as central to the emergence of the identities of people and objects.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thinking about Materials and Culture 31 Oct 2007
This is an excellent book and guides the reader through the history of archaeological thinking on the subject matter. It explains the way archaeologists look at the objects and ideas which comprise culture.

It is a fantastic book - but it is quite complex and suitable for students studying archaeology at degree or post-graduate level.
