Cognitive Differences in the Ways Men and Women Experience the Dimension and Duration of Time: Contrasting Gaia and Chronos

This book argues that there are consistent temporal processing differences between the sexes and that these differences are of the same order of magnitude as the already known spatial processing differences. “Gaia and Chronos” is a treatise on the sensory and cognitive differences between the sexes in the dimension of time. Through descriptions of previous experiments relating to gender differences in the dimension of time, this work describes gender differences in the ability to accurately perceive time. In considering cognitive differences between the sexes, we have consistently neglected the dimension of time. Since time and space are inseparable companions, it would be incorrect to assume that reliable sex differences are evident only in spatial capabilities. Preview
