The concept of time period is interesting because it represents, apparently, certain rudiments of the process of social human existence. When describing a phenomenon from the point of view of the duration of its existence in the solution of man's problems, man began to measure it first, including the very General characteristics, or more precisely, the measure as "time" and "period". This measurement can be compared with how people, not having a thermometer to operate with such concepts, as "cold" and "heat". At a certain stage of awareness of reality and himself, he had still no idea about the smaller division, at least the more important and formalized. The concept of "period" or "time" can be considered essentially the first formal presentation about the lifetime of objects of the external world. It is important to emphasize that the concept of "time" as the period of existence of the phenomenon or object with the appearance of the concepts "time" and "period" becomes conscious, relevant and formalized. Needed to develop this idea and to Express it in more detailed units, i.e. to continue the formalization. The Rubicon has been crossed.
The process of updating and formalizing the concept of a period of existence as the concept of time continued in the next one, but still the General categories of era, century, tableement. With clear conceptual boundaries, although the concept of the era remains uncertain on its borders. However, the content of this concept does not have any physical borders, it is connected, primarily, with social life, with social periodization, which is very different from the boundaries of physical existence of the object. The concept of era is associated with the period of the existence of large social groups and their activities. Therefore, the age can go beyond the concepts of "age", "life"; it may be more or less.
