Sommeil et relation au temps

D’où nous vient l’idée que les heures de sommeil sont un moment à chérir et protéger ?

En préambule à la parution de son livre (The Siesta and the Midnight sun) sur l’impact des différences culturelles sur la perception du temps, l’auteur Jessa Gamble nous livre déjà quelques belles réflexions dans ce post :

Cultural conceptions of a good nights rest are wildly variable. […] Once asleep, a North American adult is likely to be, if not tiptoed around, at least left undisturbed unless there is some type of emergency. In contrast, if I retired at 10 in Egypt, I might be woken at midnight by someone asking where I put the spatula. I started to wonder why I had ever thought sleep was a state deserving of respect.
