In our era, we are highly aware of time in its multiple appearances and especially of the scarcity of time. Even though almost everything is moving faster due to technical and technological innovations, it seems that there is less and less time left. The fact that social order is changing at an ever-faster pace, and all the more so when it comes to power and authority constellations, triggers this inquiry into a possible connection between authority and time.
