a significant period of time
The exact meaning of epoch
depends upon its context. For example:
- "an epoch of scientific discovery" — an historical period
- "during the Late Jurassic epoch" — a unit of geological time smaller than a period and larger than an age
- "the epoch moment of the photo" — the time of an astronomical measurement
- No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence,—that which makes its truth, its meaning—its subtle and penetrating essence.
