the new Analogy

''Every society possesses what is called an "image of the world". This image has its roots in the unconscious structure of society and requires a specific conception of time to foster it. The works and words of men are made of time, they are time: they are a movement towars this or that, whatever the reality the this or that designates, even if it is nothingness itself. Time is the deposity of meaning".

Part of the lecture "the new Analogy"
