Based upon a discussion of the concept education and its temporal structures, this paper attempts to show how education could be seen as contributing to different forms of social and individual temporal crises prevalent in modern societies since at least the end of the 19th century. In contemplating those relations, and based on historical and intercultural explorations into Classic European and Japanese thinking, the paper aspires to open up a new horizon for a systematic revaluation and conceptual reinvention of education.
