Developmental and cognitive perspectives on humans' sense of the times of past and future events
Friedman, William J.
This chapter was written to illustrate the diversity of humans' experience of time by providing examples of its components and the different ages at which they are found. It is also intended to provide a summary of the main findings from many of the approaches that developmental psychologists have taken. It is not a comprehensive review; the literature is too extensive in some areas for this to be practical in a single chapter. But many of the references can help the interested reader find additional sources in a particular area. In addition to summarizing findings, the concluding section provides some ideas about the reasons behind the developmental pattern.
