The Sense of an Ending

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 4:23 PM

Sir Frank Kermode died yesterday (British time) at 90.

“Time cannot exist without a soul (to count it).” — Aristotle

— Passage quoted on the title page of Kermode’s The Sense of an Ending  (Oxford University Press, 1967)

The Cambridge Companion to Plotinus, Lloyd P. Gerson, Cambridge University Press, 1996, p. 208—

“Although Aristotle seems in general to regard time as something independent of the soul and objective, he occasionally gives a leading role to soul. He says, for example, that time cannot exist without a soul to number it (Phys. 223a21-9)….”
