MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

How
do people perceive time? This book presents a wealth of contemporary and
classical research, including some of the history and philosophy of time
perception. Influential internal clock-based models of time perception receive
an in-depth but non-technical introduction and discussion. The role of
cognition and emotion in perceiving time is also explored, as well as questions
derived from time experience in daily life, such as why time seems to pass more
quickly in one situation rather than another. Classical and modern research on
timing in children is reviewed, as well as work on time perception and time
experience in older people. Leading recent models of animal timing are also
discussed in a non-mathematical way. 


Back cover:

John Wearden is Emeritus Professor of Psychology at Keele University, UK. He has authored more than 120 articles and book chapters, mostly on time perception in humans and animals.
