The Greeks have 2 words for time: Chronos and Kairos.  Look them up.  Study them.  Think about them.  Do your best to understand them.

In a thoughtful paragraph (300-350 words), describe why understanding both of these meanings is important for the construction of historical analysis.

  • Why should we have a Chronos and Kairos view of history and time and events?
  • What would our understanding of our past look like if we only used one or the other and not both?
  • Give an example of something from your life that represents both Chronos and Kairos.
