The Physics of TimeDownloadable Audiobook - 2016
From the celebrated author of the best-selling Physics for Future Presidents comes “a provocative, strongly argued book on the fundamental nature of time” (Lee Smolin).
You are reading the word "now" right now. But what does that mean? "Now" has bedeviled philosophers, priests, and modern-day physicists from Augustine to Einstein and beyond. In Now, eminent physicist Richard A. Muller takes up the challenge. He begins with remarkably clear explanations of relativity, entropy, entanglement, the Big Bang, and more, setting the stage for his own revolutionary theory of time, one that makes testable predictions. Muller’s monumental work will spark major debate about the most fundamental assumptions of our universe, and may crack one of physics’ longest-standing enigmas.
Baker & Taylor
The eminent experimental physicist and award-winning author of Physics for Future Presidents explores how scientific definitions of "now" have eluded forefront scientific, philosophical and religious minds, outlining a theory of testable predictions that explain how physics clarifies reality rather than declaring it an illusion.
