Three articles on time, all tangentially related to something I mentioned a few posts back on the relationship between work culture and time (both in discussion of the relationship between technology and industrial structure here and in my mention of one of my favorite papers, by E.P. Thompson in this post). The first is a contemporary example of why, and what we need to do in the twenty-first century to take some time off. The second and third are book reviews of Eva Hoffman's Time. While the reviews differ widely in their appraisals, both bring up some very interesting points which are addressed in Hoffman's book and which address the relationship between time and economy/society.
