Develops an analysis of the ways in which Porfirian society displayed conflicts and consensus around their ways of perceiving time. One of the author's central proposals is to link urbanization processes with the deployment of public clocks by the city of Mexico City during the second half of the 19th century. The author recovers the views of James C. Scott on the resistance and the notion of injustice that Barrington Moore displays, to try to explain the conflicts that arose around temporal definitions during this period.
