Lee Smolin´s book about time is hitting on the possible illusion established by physicists and cosmologists and philosophers alike, that there is no time. That there is no fundamental difference between knowledge of the present and knowledge of the future. That is, could we live a truly rational life, without surprises. Going through 20 years of his work with and struggles with relativity, quantum foundations, and quantum gravity he unfolds a different, quite revolutionary story. Highly recommended for those who wat to challenge their habits and world-view about reality…
“The strongest dose of clarity in written form to have come along in decades. The implications go far beyond physics, to economics, politics, and personal philosophy. Time Reborn places reality above theory in stronger and clearer terms than ever before, and the result is a path to better theory and potentially to a better society as well.
Will no doubt be remembered as one of the essential books of the 21st century.”
