Time's Arrow & Archimedes' Point: New Directions for the Physics of Time

Huw Price

Abstract

Why is the future so different from the past? Why does the past affect the future and not the other way round? The universe began with the Big Bang — will it end with a “Big Crunch”? This book presents an innovative and controversial view of time and contemporary physics. The book urges physicists, philosophers, and anyone who has ever pondered the paradoxes of time to look at the world from a fresh perspective and he throws fascinating new light on some of the great mysteries of the universe.

Keywords: Big Bang, time, physics, philosophers, universe
