Time will tell

narrative expressions of time in a complex world

Leo Caves, Ana Teixeira de Melo, Susan Stepney

pp. 269-284

Time is intrinsic to all complex systems. Here we explore the complexity of time from three different disciplinary perspectives: the physical, the biological and the social. We do this by listing some expressions of time taken from everyday speech and idioms and relating them to complex temporal concepts that are central to these different disciplines. The result is a series of small sections that together weave a particular interdisciplinary (hi)story of time in complexity.
