COLECIA OROLOGERIE

Spaiul i timpul au fost i sunt dou componente indispensabile cunoaterii umane. Ca s


explorezi ai nevoie de timp i ai nevoie de timp ca s cunoti. Legtura dintre spaiu i timp,
dintre aici i acolo, ine foarte mult de percepia senzorial, uor diferit n funcie de starea
personal a fiecruia i de punctul de referin n care se situeaz.
Ca o ncercare de regsire a timpului ntr-o formul care este strict legat de condiia
uman, putem spune c timpul se compune din trecut, prezent i viitor.
A tri nu nseamn doar o trecere prin fluxul orar de la o zi la alta. nseamn experien
adunat, dorina de mprtire a acestei experiene, de a lsa un semn vizibil a ceea ce suntem,
printr-o proiecie a timpului calitativ.
Conceptul de timp se sustrage determinrilor filosofice riguroase ntruct nu are o natur
imuabil. Surprinderea semnificaiei acestui concept se poate desfura pe dou paliere
comprehensive:
-

Msura i msurarea timpului i a fenomenului su corelativ (spaiul), putem discuta


despre timpul fizic, despre timpul comun experimentat de fiecare prin sistemul de

referin inerial la care ader;


Descrierea modului n care timpul apare contiinei, existenei umane, caz n care
vorbim despre timpul uman i timpul personal.

Colecia OROLOGIE deinut de Muzeul Agriculturii contribuie la nelegerea


timpului prin mecanismele de msurare a timpului de tip pendul, ceasuri de mas sau cadrane
solare. Fr s fie o colecie prea mare, ntrunete, totui, calitile ca prin intermediul acesteia,
tematica despre percepia timpului s poat fi pus n eviden.
Colecia cuprinde: ceasuri de mas - 15 exemplare, ceas cu mecanism electromagnetic - 1
exemplar, pendule - 7 exemplare, cadrane solare - 3 exemplare.

n total, colecia deine 25 de exemplare de cadrane i mecanisme de msurare a timpului.


Timpul fizic exprimat de aceast colecie, exprim msurarea desfurrii temporale dintre dou
momente. Gndirea abstract mparte scurgerea timpului de 24 de ore n segmente egale,
nedifereniate calitativ, reprezentnd un numr al micrilor, caracteristic mecanismelor
ceasurilor deinute n aceast colecie.

THE HOROLOGY COLLECTION


Space and time were and still are two essential components of human knowledge. In
order to explore you need time and you need time to get the knowledge. The relationship
between space and time, between here and there, is strongly connected to the sensorial
perception, slightly different from one another, depending on the personal disposition of each
individual and the reference point on which he or she is located.
As an attempt to discover time in a formula that is strictly related to the human condition,
we can say that time consists of past, present and future.
Living is not just a passage through the time flow from one day to another. It means
gathered experience; desire to share this experience, and to leave a visible sign of what we are,
by a qualitative projection of the time.
The concept of time is evading the rigorous philosophical determinations, because its
nature is not immutable. Capturing the meaning of this concept may be conducted on two
comprehensive levels:
- Measure and time measuring and its correlated phenomena (space), we can discuss
about the physical time, about the mutual time experienced by each individual
-

through the inertial reference system which he or she adheres;


Description of how time is revealed to the consciousness, to the human existence, in

which case we are talking about human time and personal time.
The HOROLOGY collection owned by the Museum of Agriculture contributes to the
understanding of time through the mechanisms for time measuring such as pendulum clocks,
table clocks and sundials. Without being a large collection, it still meets the qualities necessary
for highlighting the theme about the perception of time.
The collection contains: table clocks - 15 items, clock with electromagnetic mechanism 1 item, pendulum clocks - 7 items, sundials - 3 items.
Overall, this collection has 25 pieces of dials and time measuring mechanisms. Physical
time represented by this collection expresses the measuring of time deployment between two
points. Abstract thinking divides the 24 hours time flowing into equal segments, nondifferentiated from a qualitative point of view, representing a number of movements,
characteristic for the watches mechanisms of this collection.
