The end of time : the next revolution in our understanding of the universe by Julian B Barbour( Book )

20 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the laws of nature create a powerful illusion that time is flowing, in fact there are only timeless 'nows'. In this book, the theoretical physicist Julian Barbour describes the coming revolution in our understanding of the cosmos: a quantum theory of the universe that brings together Einstein's general theory of relativity - which denies the existence of a unique time - and quantum mechanics - which demands one. Barbour contends that only the most radical of ideas can resolve the profound conflict between these two foundational pillars of modern physics, and in this book he proposes it: there is, quite literally, no time at all." "The End of Time is the first full-length account of this new worldview. Unifying thinking that has never before been brought together in a book for the general reader, The End of Time reveals the true architecture of the universe and demonstrates how physics, after centuries of advancement, is now coming up sharp against the extraordinary possibility that the sense of time passing actually emerges from a universe that is timeless."--Jacket
