By Wolfgang Ernst,Anthony Enns

Wolfgang Ernst has tested that the information of time-giving (‘chrono-poetical’) media and their temporal essence enriches the culture of philosophical inquiry into the character of ‘time’. This ebook, a translated and abridged version of Ernst’s significant volumes, Chronopoetik and Gleichursprünglichkeit, undertakes this on 3 degrees: a detailed research of time-critical moments inside of media applied sciences; descriptions of ways media temporalities have an effect on and disrupt the conventional human feel of time; and wondering the normal place of media time inside cultural history.

The e-book brings jointly fields of inquiry: the technological research of media time strategies and the venerable culture of philosophical inquiry into the character of time. Ernst argues that the clinical inquiry into the character of time is enriched through the media-technological context. The e-book exposes a media theoretical method of modern media tradition that derives from the mix of philosophical mirrored image at the essence of know-how and an in depth research of technological units themselves. eventually Ernst addresses a basic quandary of earlier, modern and destiny media tradition: the location of expertise in tradition below the targeted point of view of its tempor(e)alities.
