In Homochronos:Emergence of Time Consciousness, Tobias Grether lays out his thesis that, because of our evolving time-consciousness, human beings developed the ability to foresee the future as well as build on the life strategies created by past generations. Thus, Homo chronos, not Homo sapiens. Grether develops the Human Action Cycle to illustrate the emergence of conscious learning from past acts and projecting new plans into an as-yet non-existent future. In its earliest stages, time-consciousness made possible successful survival strategies; later, it engendered life-stabilizing acts, providing an essential condition for the birth of religion, the progress of the arts and sciences, and, globally, the advance of human culture. Although intensified time-consciousness creates UUR-Uneasiness, Uncertainty, and Restlessness, it enables humans to act on as-yet unknown possibilities, gifting them with the flexibility to grow and thrive. This is a book covering all fields of human science - time,consciousness,philosophy,economics,society,culture anthropology and psychology. It is a readable, thought-provoking book.
