  • The Evolution of Timeby Argyris Nicolaidis; Wolfgang Achtner

    Bentham Science Publishers 2013; US$ 59.00

    Time - a fundamental component of human thought and experience - is quite enigmatic and elusive when it comes to defining it. In this e-book, scholars from the fields of physics, mathematics, biology, neuroscience, psychology, philosophy and theology draw from their own field of knowledge and expertise and present their understanding of the time phenomenon. more...

  • Time Rebornby Lee Smolin

    Knopf Canada 2013; US$ 22.00

    Since the ancients, physicists have argued that time is not real, that we may think we experience time passing but it's just a human illusion in a timeless universe operating on predetermined laws. Lee brilliantly shows how this thinking came about from our deep need for stability and the eternal, but that indeed time may be the only thing that is... more...

  • Aeons: The Search for the Beginning of Time (Text Only)by Martin Gorst

    HarperCollins Publishers 2013; Not Available

    The full story of man?s attempt to discover the moment that time began, from James Ussher?s confident assertion in 1650 that the world was 5,654 years old to the Hubble Space telescope?s images of a world 13 billion years old, with a starry cast of eccentrics, mystics, scientists and visonaries. more...

  • The Book of Timesby Lesley Alderman

    HarperCollins 2013; US$ 13.99

    An endlessly fascinating, beautifully designed survey of time?how long things take, how long things last, and how we spend our days Our relationship to time is complex and paradoxical: Time stands still. Time also flies. Tomorrow is another day. Yet there's no time like the present. We want to do more in less time, but wish we could slow the clock.... more...

  • The Yoga of Time Travelby Fred Alan Wolf

    Quest Books 2012; US$ 17.95

    Buddha said he could move backward through time, observes theoretical physicist Fred Alan Wolf. Time travel is not just science fiction; it may actually be possible. Wolf draws on yoga and quantum physics to show that time is a flexible projection of mind. Cheating time, he says, is an ancient metaphysical idea from the Vedas having to do with moving... more...

  • A Question of Timeby Scientific American Editors

    Scientific American 2012; US$ 3.99

    ?What time is it?? That simple question is probably asked more often in contemporary society than ever before. In our clock-studded world, the answer is never more than a glance away, and so we can blissfully partition our days into ever smaller increments for ever more tightly scheduled tasks. Modern scientific revelations about time, however, make... more...

  • On the Months (de Mensibus)by Ioannes Lydus; Anastasius C. Bandy; Anastasia Bandy; Demetrios J. Constantelos; Craig J. N. de Paulo

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2012; US$ 169.95

    The objective of this edition is textual and translational in nature. Since the works of Lydus are replete with Latin vocabulary, this book serves to bring it into English. The translation is faithful to the original and accurate so as to express Lydus’ intended thoughts. His repetitious use of certain linguistic expressions, although sometimes... more...

  • Objects of Timeby Kevin K. Birth

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 33.00

    This is a book about time, but it is also about much more than time?it is about how the objects we use to think about time shape our thoughts. Because time ties together so many aspects of our lives, this book is able to explore the nexus of objects, cognition, culture, and even biology, and to do so in relationship to globalization. more...
