Description

Why do we remember the past and not the future? What does it mean for time to "flow"? Do we exist in time or does time exist in us? In lyric, accessible prose, Carlo Rovelli invites us to consider questions about the nature of time that continue to puzzle physicists and philosophers alike.

Professor Rovelli is making the grammar of the universe accessible to a new generation * Channel 4 News * The new Hawking. . .
