Carlo Rovelli - The Order of Time
Rovelli’s international bestseller, Seven Brief Lessons on Physics, was the definition of elegance in both the literary and scientific senses. His new book is an equally lucid, concise, and beguiling exploration of time. We all experience time, and know it as something regular and measurable, moving always into the future. But is our perception true to what is actually going on? Not according to the theory of quantum gravity. Drawing on the latest science as well as on age-old philosophical queries, Rovelli, one of the founders of loop quantum gravity theory and head of the Quantum Gravity group at the Centre de Physique Théorique of Aix-Marseille University, shows us time as we’ve never imagined it.
