  • The Labyrinth of Timeby Michael Lockwood

    Oxford University Press, UK 2005; US$ 18.99

    Modern physics has revealed the universe as a much stranger place than we could have imagined. The puzzle at the centre of our knowledge of the universe is time.

He investigates philosophical questions about past, present, and future, our experience of time, and the... more...

  • The Nature of Space and Timeby Stephen Hawking; Roger Penrose

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 14.95

    Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united in a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined?... more...

  • The End of Timeby Julian Barbour

    Oxford University Press, USA 2000; US$ 18.99

    Richard Feynman once quipped that "Time is what happens when nothing else does." But Julian Barbour disagrees: if nothing happened, if nothing changed, then time would stop. For time is nothing but change. It is change that we perceive occurring all around us, not time. Put simply, time does not exist. In this highly provocative volume, Barbour... more...

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 237.00

    This book provides a comprehensive survey of the development of the theory of scale relativity and fractal space-time.

  • Polar Inertiaby Paul Virilio

    SAGE Publications 1999; US$ 58.00

  • The Large Scale Structure of Space-Timeby S. W. Hawking; G. F. R. Ellis

    Cambridge University Press 1973; US$ 84.00

  • On the Way to Understanding the Time Phenomenonby A.P. Levich

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 95.00

    Time is considered as an independent entity which cannot be reduced to the concept of matter, space or field. The point of discussion is the “time flow” conception of N A Kozyrev (1908–1983), an outstanding Russian astronomer and natural scientist. In addition to a review of the experimental studies of “the active properties... more...
