Includes bibliographical references and index.
Preface : perhaps time is the greatest remaining mystery -- The crumbling of time -- Loss of unity -- Loss of direction -- The end of the present -- Loss of independence -- Quanta of time -- The world without time -- The world is made of events, not things -- The inadequacy of grammar -- Dynamics as relation -- The sources of time -- Time is ignorance -- Perspective -- What emerges from a particularity -- The scent of the madeleine -- The source of time.
Why do we remember the past and not the future? What does it mean for time to "flow"? Do we exist in time or does time exist in us? In lyric, accessible prose, Carlo Rovelli invites us to consider questions about the nature of time that continue to puzzle physicists and philosophers alike.-- Provided by publisher.
