This book began by suggesting that time would be understood in Hippocratic, not Aristotelian terms. Hippocratic time is in principle strictly limited, because as human time it is in short supply. The preceding chapters illustrated this view of time by many examples. This epilogue presents additional information regarding an explicit theory of time, which has up to this point been discussed only in an abbreviated form and from varying points of view. This information is to be gained above all from language and the history of language, and has heretofore attracted little if any attention from authorities on the philosophy of time.

Keywords:   Hippocratic time, human time, theory of time, history of language, philosophy of time
