Time, Culture and Identity questions the modern western distinctions between:
* nature and culture
* mind and body
* object and subject.

Drawing on the philosophy of Martin Heidegger, Julian Thomas develops a way of writing about the past in which time is seen as central to the emergence of the identities of people and objects.
