內容簡介


時間的秩序 

英國衛報夏日推薦閱讀


曾用七堂簡單物理課就讓讀者了解現代物理架構的羅維理,將再次用最美麗、最詩意的方式,讓讀者重新思考「時間」的真諦。

時間一直都是科學家、哲學家、藝術家、詩人們持續研究的主題,不同的理論就帶給我們不同的理解,我們對於「時間」的想法不停在改變。

有些科學家認為要研究世界運作的方式,就要先了解時間,另外一派科學家認為,人類用一連串的事件來規範出「時間」,時間事實上並不存在,這樣的爭論出現了一個很棒的問題,也就是人類對於「時間」的概念是如何出現的。

羅維理認為,時間跟失去有關係,因此人類總是在抵抗它,而研究科學、時間,並非去研究科技或著很困難的現象,對他來說,研究科學就是思考這個世界,了解時間也就了解自己,了解自己也就了解時間。

對於科學沒有背景的讀者們,可從本書中得到一個了解科學的窗口,而熟知科學的讀者也可以在這裡找到一個不同的視角,推薦給所以關心這個世界的人。

The bestselling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics takes us on an enchanting journey to discover the meaning of time


Time is a mystery that does not cease to puzzle us. Philosophers, artists and poets have long explored its meaning while scientists have found that its structure is different from the simple intuition we have of it. From Boltzmann to quantum theory, from Einstein to loop quantum gravity, our understanding of time has been undergoing radical transformations. Time flows at a different speed in different places, the past and the future differ far less than we might think, and the very notion of the present evaporates in the vast universe.

With his extraordinary charm and sense of wonder, bringing together science, philosophy and art, Carlo Rovelli unravels this mystery, inviting us to imagine a world where time is in us and we are not in time.
