Summary
This work looks at the way in which we experience time in secular societies. In Fenn's view, secularization is virtually synonymous with individualism. Although it is often the Church that decries modern individualism, he says, it is in fact the Church that created it, by its demystification of the universe, its insistence on individual self-discipline, and its intensification of individual responsibility for the use of time. The result was a profound change in the way in which time is experienced by the individual. Fenn offers an exploration of our modern experience of time, as expressed in such phrases as "wasting time" and "making up for lost time". He is particularly interested in the idea and experience of waiting, which he believes to be a defining characteristic of modern life
