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.
Julian Thomas is Lecturer in Archaeology at Southampton University. He is the Secretary of the World Archaeological Congress. His previous publications include Rethinking the Neolithic(1991) and numerous articles on European prehistory and archaeological theory.
'[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
