The twelve papers collected in this volume, explore the consequences of time, and its relationship with space through a multi-disciplinary approach, including the philosophy of space and time, social geography, post-Marxian social theory, new network theory, philosophy of art and culture, musicology, evolutionary biology, historiography, psychoanalytic theory, and comparative literature. The chief inspiration for this collection came from the realization that although mathematics and the quantum-relativity debate in physics had fully established the concept of space-time, this realization had not been worked through into other areas of concern with concepts of spatiality and temporality. In coming together to “think through” the consequences of this twentieth century revolution in space-time, hybrid spatialities and multiple temporalities became heterogeneous and yet interrelated with the others. Not only can we only now speak of “space-time”, and not “space” and “time” as separate ontological categories, but also each becomes multiple.
