Olsen et al.: Time and Weather


“Time is paradoxical. Here it flows evenly. There it is turbulent, with countercurrents, eddies, and whirlpools. Here it is gathered. There it unfurls over the very long term. “Weather” and “time” are the same word in many languages: le temps in French; o kairos in Greek (Serres with Latour 1995, 60).” (p. 152) #Olsen #Shanks #Webmoor #Witmore #time #weather #temps
