In search of time : journeys along a curious dimension by Dan Falk( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The enigma of time has captivated journalist Dan Falk, who sets off on a journey In Search of Time. The quest takes him from the ancient observatories of stone-age Ireland to the atomic clocks of the U.S. Naval Observatory; from the layers of geological 'deep time' in an Arizona canyon to Albert Einstein's apartment in Switzerland. In the process, we meet great minds from the past and hear from today's most profound thinkers: Roger Penrose, Paul Davies, Julian Barbour, David Deutsch, Lee Smolin, and many more. Falk speaks with anthropologists and historians about our deep desire to track time's cycles, asks psychologists and neuroscientists about the mysteries of memory, and quizzes physicists about the beginning and end of time - not to mention the latest theories about time travel and the paradoxes it seems to entail
