Expanding our time perspective is a useful way of understanding all kinds of events, not just quarrels. It becomes particularly useful when we are trying to understand something as complex as what is going on in the world at large. So many changes are taking place, in so many places on the planet, that looking at what is in this week’s newspapers isn’t much help in getting a grasp of events. Yet we are very oriented to living in the present in the United States, more so than in most countries. Our foreign policy seems made almost from moment to moment. Our personal lives are also frequently lived moment to moment. It is ironic that a sense of history was much greater among the ancients than it is among ourselves.
