Within the hypermediated age where knowledge production is decentered and horizontal, the experience of lived time has become a concordance of temporalities, and thought concerning the world is now a thought concerning a plurality of worlds. By way of six guiding threads (exposition, media, controversy, publication, institutionalization, archaeology), this essay describes the transformation of cultural forms and visions of history.
