Résumé en anglais

The objective of this paper is to present the implications of the contraction of space and time on individuals' relationships with them.

According to us, the contraction of space results in an excess of space and leads to its temporalization. In a similar manner, the contraction of time results in an excess of time : time which is more and more disorganized. An opposition is thus made between modern, ordered time, and postmodern "patchwork time".

This contraction of space and time leads to a rise in anxieties and a certain quest for eternity, itself associated with the renewal of different forms of tribal organization. Facing this twofold movement of contraction, places, for us, represent a place of refuge for individuals. Our proposition is that three different types of places be distinguished according to the level of exposure to real space-time and the role played by the individual's body.
