This chapter discusses the history of the development of time perspectivism and the nature of palimpsests.Particular attention is directed to the definition of these terms, the historical context in which the ideas arose, their wider meaning and significance, the difficulties that have inhibited their acceptance and their practical implementation, and the consequences that must follow from fully embracing a time perspective view of the world.
