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.


'[It is] of profound importance … This book is a good one to start a reader tapping into the thinking currently taking place.' - The LeyHunter Journal

'…this book may well convert some previously 'doubting Thomas' to post-processualism.' - History Review
