JITRIK, Noé. Tóp. Sem [online]. 2011, n.26, pp.13-24. ISSN 2594-0619.

From a more poetic than a strictly anthropological image, the author focuses the theme of slowness on the origin of movement of the large prehistoric animals. A first result of this is patience, a notion that is closely linked to that of slowness and very soon becomes moral. A notion of rhythm is set and that movement would have been natural for the predecessors of humans. Of course, not at that moment nor when slowness is seen as typical of certain movements can it be understood if it is not in relation to speed. From this interplay, that sketch of the concept, that of rhythm, takes shape and is gradually imposed until it governs not only all life, individual and social, but also until it makes all passing of time intelligible.
