Show Summary Details


The book presents two significant views: one that is grounded on the realistic and objective views of present time, the other focused on views that border on our perceptions and intuitions. It tries to present the different theories and insights on time and contemporary physics, and attempts to clarify any existing conflict in the matter. It explores the physical and philosophical aspects, trying to determine their relationships as well as their differences. It gives a thorough narration and enumeration of prominent figures in the field of physics and their corresponding contributions, and gives us a substantial overview and perspective on both philosophy and physics alike, providing more comprehension and clarity on the subject at hand.
