    Julius Thomas Fraser was born in 1923 and died in 2010 His life was longish and well lived by human standards but of infinitesimal duration by cosmic standards He wrote many articles and books on the subject of time, such as The Voices of Time ed 1968 , Of Time Passion and Knowledge 1975 , Time the Familiar Stranger 1987 , Time, Conflict and Human Values 1999 and Time and Time Again Reports from a Boundary of the Universe 2007 He with near evangelical passion repeated the theme of time evolving from simple to complex via levels of temporality atemporal, prototemporal, eotemporal, biotemporal and sociotemporal J T Fraser s theory of time as conflict is that time can be conceived as a nested hierarchy of unresolvable conflicts like a babushka doll atemporal blank sheet of paperobjects travelling at speed of lightblack hole Big Bangcausation has no meaningprototemporal fragmented shaft of an arrowpartical waves travelling at less than speed of lightinstants may be specified only statisticallyprobabilistic causation joins prototemporal eventseotemporal shaft of an arrowcountable and orderable without a preferred directionnowless timephysical mattertime orientable but not time orienteddeterministic causation joins eotemporal eventsbiotemporal short arrowfuture, past, present,limited temporal horizonsorganic presentsimultaneities of necessityorganic intentionality directed toward concrete goals and serving the continuity of the organism s lifemultiple and final causationrigid programming gives way to dynamic programmingnootemporal long straight arrow You ll come to me out of the long ago intentionality directed towards concrete or symbolic goalsserving continued integrity of the self.human actions are connected through symbolic causes known as ideasthe possibility of choice among ideas and corresponding actions is known as human freedomideas can produce responses to imaginary challengessociotemporal A society is a group of people with a family of conflicts that defines themand distinguishes them from other societies.man has capacity to change social institutions in response to symbolic causesCharles Darwin published On the Origin of Species in 1859, but even now the implications of evolution in rethinking philosophy are still underutilized One of the sharpest expositors of evolutionary epistemology was Karl Popper who finally retrieved knowledge out of the realm of the personal and placed it in the cosmic J T Fraser only briefly alluded to Popper but Alexander Argyros has thankfully analysed Popper s views in greater depth and clarified the similarities in Popper s knowledge hierarchy and Fraser s temporal hierarchy I find this exciting.Popper s three worlds of knowledge World 1 knowledge encoded structures in a physical system e.g DNA World 2 knowledge tacit, beliefs and belief predispositions in minds about the world, the beautiful and the right that we believe have survived our tests and evaluations World 3 knowledge shareable linguistic formulations, knowledge claims about the world, the beautiful and the right e.g books, wikisArgyros A Blessed Rage for Order Deconstruction, Evolution and Chaos is a profound and wise work I hope it can reach a broader audience Argyros supplies a welcome breath of fresh air He shows an understanding and familiarity with Derrida, Husserl, Wittgenstein and their ilk sufficient to show the maze of ambiguity that their essentialist analyses tend to produce He suggests that a perhaps weakened arrow of time exists at lower temporal umwelts which is a variation on Fraser s view He reappraises Fraser s extended umwelt theory and the arrow of time in the light of chaos theory This may have considerable potential for future research.I have been long searching for such a temporal analysis which integrates Karl Popper s evolutionary epistemology The wait has been worthwhile I recently read Anthony Steven s Archetype Revisited An Updated Natural History of the Self It complements Argyros s work and even Popper s.A synthesis indeed of knowledge claims about the world, the beautiful and the right in the light of the familiar stranger, time.
