Reviews

“…a remarkable study.” • Steven Lukes

Description

Time, as we experience it, is a social and cultural phenomenon. The pioneering study of the social representation of time was by Henri Hubert (1872-1927). Hubert was a core member of the group who worked with Émile Durkheim and a close collaborator with Marcel Mauss. His essay on time is a good example of the group's originality and intellectually creative "collective ferment." This is its first English translation, and includes its review by Mauss.

Henri Hubert (1872-1927)

Subject: Sociology Theory and Methodology
Area: France
