Inca Perceptions of Time

26.02.2021 | 15:00 - 17:00

Online Workshop of the Einstein Center Chronoi

Among the divergent Amerindian Civilizations that range from Aztecs, Mayas and Toltecs in Mesoamerica to Chibchas in today’s Colombia and Iroquois in today’s USA and Canada, the Inca are a particularly fruitful case study. Incas and their civilization exist even today in Andean countries, both as a way of life and as a political program, so written sources from the 16 and 17th c. and Inca artefacts from the 15-17th c. can be complemented by oral traditions recorded since the 19th c. in Spanish and Quechua. Drawing on these sources, the workshop attempts to obtain a fuller understanding of Inca perceptions of time and space.
