  • We are awash in time, savoring a few moments of it we project ourselves into it, reinvent it, play with it we take our time or let it slip away it is the raw material of our imagination Age, on the other hand, is the detailed account of the days that pass, the one way view of the years whose total sum when set forth can stupefy us Age wedges each of us between a date We are awash in time, savoring a few moments of it we project ourselves into it, reinvent it, play with it we take our time or let it slip away it is the raw material of our imagination Age, on the other hand, is the detailed account of the days that pass, the one way view of the years whose total sum when set forth can stupefy us Age wedges each of us between a date of birth that, at least in the West, we know for certain and an expiration date that, as a general rule, we would like to defer Time is a freedom, age a constraint Marc Aug remembers his beloved childhood cat, who seemed to grow wise with age, though her essential nature remained unchanged He considers our belief that objects mature, when it is our perception of them that evolves over time He wonders why public demonstrations of affection between the elderly make the young so uncomfortable and why we torture ourselves with regret at what might have been Time can be liberating, he finds it is a resource we can squander or relish Yet age is a burden, bound by our personal and cultural neuroses With an ethnologist s understanding of construct and practice, Aug isolates age from the development of consciousness, desire, and representations of the self In bold, eye opening strokes, he casts age as a physical marker and treats one s youthful approach to the world as the true measure of life s value.

        Marc Aug is a French anthropologist His career can be divided into three stages, reflecting shifts in both his geographical focus and theoretical development early African , middle European and late Global These successive stages do not involve a broadening of interest or focus as such, but rather the development of a theoretical apparatus able to meet the demands of the growing conviction that the local can no longer be understood except as a part of the complicated global whole.

    1. I never read Aug before, although I m familiar with his non places argument This is a little book on aging, much of it rather obvious which the author admits , but with some insights as well I like the fact that French academics can write in this style something unthinkable for the quantifiable output obsessed UK and US academia Or, perhaps it is a function of his powerful status and, well, age Nevertheless, interesting, and includes one brilliant sentence, almost like an aphorism To write is to [...]
