The construction of notions of time, space and movement has over time been modified in conjunction with evolving forms of organization in societies. Certainly, the way in which time and space are conceptualized corresponds to a hegemonic vision of the world and is linked directly to the social organization of both, as well as to their utilization as indispensable instruments in the exercise of power. In this sense, the classification, reticulation and stratification of spaces to control flows and movement have been characteristics of power in modernity, although this has been undertaken by varying means, depending on the political system.
