Time

in Ethnography

‘The Greeks, Levine explains, had two words for time: CHRONOS and KAIROS. CHRONOS means absolute time: linear, chronological, and quantifiable. KAIROS, however, means qualitative time- the time of opportunity, chance, and mischance. If you can go to bed because the clock says half 10, you are adhering to a chronological time system. If you go to sleep because you are tired, you are following kairological or event time. We are all born with a sense of event time.’  Thackara, John: In A Bubble- designing for a complex world
