On Time: an Investigation into Scientific Knowledge and Human Experience by Michael Shallis


Hardcover. Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket: Very Good. 1983. Schocken Books. 1st U.S. Edition.

In this book, the author takes us on a guided tour of this new, relativistic universe where time is a central, but elusive, factor. He shows how complicated our time-keeping will become should we ever achieve the dream of traveling to the stars; how "black holes" stop time in its tracks; how the relationship between time and light limits our probing of the universe.
