In this pathbreaking philosophical work, Elizabeth Grosz points the way toward a theory of becoming to replace the prevailing ontologies of being in social, political, and biological discourse. Arguing that theories of temporality have significant and underappreciated relevance to the social dimensions of science and the political dimensions of struggle, Grosz engages key theoretical concerns related to the reality of time. She explores the effect of time on the organization of matter and on the emergence and development of biological life. Considering how the relentless forward movement of time might be conceived in political and social terms, she begins to formulate a model of time that incorporates the future and its capacity to supersede and transform the past and present. Grosz develops her argument by juxtaposing the work of three major figures in Western thought: Charles Darwin, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Henri Bergson. She reveals that in theorizing time as an active, positive phenomenon with its own characteristics and specific effects, each of these thinkers had a profound effect on contemporary understandings of the body in relation to time. She shows how their allied concepts of life, evolution, and becoming are manifest in the work of Gilles Deleuze and Luce Irigaray. Throughout The Nick of Time, Grosz emphasizes the political and cultural imperative to fundamentally rethink time: the more clearly we understand our temporal location as beings straddling the past and the future without the security of a stable and abiding present, the more transformation becomes conceivable.

Author: Dr. Sherry L. Meinberg
Coincidences, synchronicities, and dreams bear marked similarities. They often catch us off guard, and we tend to easily discount them without giving them much thought. The signs and symbols involved are considered to be guideposts for the wise as they each hold much meaning and significance if we are open and receptive to their messages.

The writing of the book was formed in my mind as a young man, stimulated by time and circumstances the book grew powerful within me. Why did I think it was timely to bring these opinions of mine to the print was that for years the Lord has lead me As I travelled to different places more truths were revealed and exposed as lies. I didnt write all I do know because of the threats I have received just preaching about them. Potentially, I gain to achieve more thought and to look at God and Jesus through my eyes and the bible. If this book causes you anger or pain, then you are not in the group of people I am describing as sheep. Not everyone is going to understand or agree with my findings, but remember Noah was preaching about a world being destroyed and no one paid attention to the flood swept them away. It only takes one of Gods servants to announce His approach, not ministers with their assumptions, not a world leader who takes control; He uses only His own choice not humans. AMEN
