Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses about time representation that should be classified as agent dependent motor-intentional, agent dependent conceptual and agent independent conceptual. It talks about certain features of psychological and cultural time. The chapter also discusses how biological time constrains such features. It examines the motor-intentional time, a crucial psychophysical link that bridges the gap between purely biochemical cycles and conceptual-intentional representations of time. The chapter presents that the best way to understand the transitions from biological to psychological time is to characterize them as phase transitions that emerge on the global properties of a system (in this case temporal behavior) regardless of specific aspects of the underlying processing units.

Keywords: biological time constrains; cultural time; motor intentional time
