Summary

This volume brings together contributions from the VII. And VIII. Regensburg Symposium on two basic categories of the sciences: "Time" and "Causality". In social contexts too, one asks for scientific prognoses about the future and for explanations of events in the present and the past. In many contexts, people want to understand processes, recognize influences and be able to influence them themselves. The symposia explored the dimensions of time and causality both theoretically and in connection with social fields of action.
How is man embedded in time? How does time work in people? What can sciences, with their research-specific access to the parameter “time”, contribute to a differentiated understanding of time? From the perspective of various subjects, the VII Regensburg Symposium discussed inter alia. Aspects of modeling as well as the perception of time and its conceptualization in cultures and languages. The volume contains contributions from philosophy, ethnology, history, psychology and linguistics.
The concept of “causality”, the theme of the 8th Regensburg Symposium, also contains a reference to “time”. Socially, the question of causal relationships is primarily about evaluating and controlling complex causal relationships. Especially where human actions are evaluated in societies, however, the focus shifts in the understanding of what is viewed as a causal relationship. The volume contains the contributions from theology, jurisprudence, criminology and psychology and thus gives an insight into their various approaches and systematizations.
