Aristotle describes "Time" as the amount of motion. For Aristotle, time as the Eternal Image as it is the case for Plato has no signification. The Aristotle's perspective is also incompatible with that of Plotinus who considers time as dynamism and motion of soul. Aristotle considers time as the amount of motion on a continuum of pre and post (before and after) other than the motion itself. The Medieval and modern philosophers, also examine time from special points of view in line with their own empirical and rational approaches. Not only, does Aristotle examine time from a natural and physical perspective, but he also addresses aspects of time, particularly the moment of "Now". He considers the moment of "Now" as the live and real time moment. Aristotle maintains that time is a phenomenon depending on the soul. The Aristotle's perspective, in fact expresses a kind of dependency between time and the identifier subject (subject); i.e. Aristotle is concerned with examination of time from a subjective view.
