Chronos in Aristotle's Physics: On the Nature of Time (SpringerBriefs in Philosophy)
Chelsea C. Harry (Author)
Book Description
Publication Date: April 25, 2015
This book is a contribution both to Aristotle studies and to the philosophy of nature, and not only offers a thorough text based account of time as modally potentiality in Aristotle’s account, but also clarifies the process of “actualizing time” as taking time and looks at the implications of conceiving a world without actual time. It speaks to the resurgence of interest in Aristotle’s natural philosophy and will become an important resource for anyone interested in Aristotle’s theory of time, of its relationship to Aristotle’s larger project in the Physics, and to time’s place in the broader scope of Aristotelian natural science.  Graduate students and scholars researching in this area especially will find the authors arguments provocative, a welcome addition to other recent publications on Aristotle’s Treatise on Time. ​

 Professor Pettigrew Studying the Stecci in the village of 
Klotjevac in eastern Bosnia.
(From the UNESCO Website):
Stecci are medieval monolithic tombstones found on the entire territory of the present Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as in parts of Serbia, Montenegro and Croatia.  Available data suggest that they first appeared in the second half of the 12th century, with the first phase lasting throughout the 13th century.  A period of the most intensive production and decoration were the 14th and 15th centuries . . . stecci were usually organized in groups thus forming family graveyards with only a few monuments, kin graveyards ranging from 30-50 monuments and/or village graveyards, sometimes with several hundred monuments.
