Dietrich Boschung and Corinna Wessels - Mevissen ( eds. ) Figurations of Time in Asia Morphomata Boschung, Wessels - Mevissen ( Eds. )  —  Figurations of time in Asia The experience and the ensuing structuring of time forms a constitutive part of human cultures. There are many ways of coming to terms with time, calendars and historiographies being its most common cultural representations. The contributions to this volume deal with lesser known figurations that result directly from the various perceptions about time and phenomena related to time. Diachronous investigations in various parts of Asia (predominantly South Asia) reveal a broad spectrum of such visual and literary figurative manifestations. While Hinduism recognizes a divine personification of time and allocates the ominous factor time in an ontological proximity to death, other cultures of Asia have developed their own specific concepts and strate- gies. This collection of essays combines perspectives of various disciplines on figurations in which time congeals, as it were. These figurations result from local time regimes, and beyond demonstrating their diversity of forms this volume offers coordinates for a comparison of cultures. The topics include chronograms as well as early Buddhist topoi of the vastness of time, the Indian Jaina represen- tation of both temporality and non-temporality and the teachings of a Mediaeval Zen master hinting at the more stationary aspects of time. edited by Dietrich Boschung and Corinna Wessels - Mevissen Morphomata Figurations edited by Günter Blamberger and Dietrich Boschung of Time in asia volume 4 Wilhelm Fink Contents Dietrich Boschung Preface 7 Corinna Wessels-Mevissen Introduction 9 Time versus Non-time Eugen Ciurtin ‘Thus Have I Quaked’: The Tempo of the Buddha’s Vita and the Earliest Buddhist Fabric of Timelessness (The Buddha’s Earthquakes II) 21 Robert J. Del Bontà unter dem Förderkennzeichen 01UK0905.
