Resetting the Theory of Time
Generations of physicists have claimed that time is an illusion. But not all agree. In his new book, Time Reborn: From the Crisis in Physics to the Future of the Universe, theoretical physicist Lee Smolin argues that time exists—and it’s key to understanding the evolution of the universe.
Lee Smolin is author of Time Reborn: From the Crisis in Physics to the Future of the Universe (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2013) and founding and senior faculty member at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada.
