The nineteenth century was shaped by serial forms of organization, production, and communication. By the nineteenth century the idea of the "series" had moved from the discipline of mathematics into the culture at large, as theories of temporal and spatial connection became dominant organizing principles for systems of knowledge developed in laboratories, libraries, and museums. Implied within seriality is both the continuity of cycles and the discontinuity of suspensions.
