9780195100952: Time's Arrow and Archimedes' Point: New Directions for the Physics of Time
Review:

`... a thoughtful (and thought-provoking) analysis of the time-asymmetry problem of physics which is in many ways deeper and more illuminating than accounts to be found elsewhere.' Roger Penrose, Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics, University of Oxford, and author of Shadows of the Mind and The Emperor's New Mind

`In this challenging book, Price applies critical reasoning and penetrating insight to the current theories of physics and cosmology that have a bearing on this problem.' Paul Davies, Professor of Natural Philosophy, The University of Adelaide, and author of About Time and The Physics of Time Asymmetry

splendidly provocative book. ( Sunday Times)

' ...he has taken a subject understood by a few experts and thrown open the door to the masses. Take it with a pinch of salt, perhaps; but do take it, and enjoy it as a feast for the imagination." ( The Sunday Times)

...Price's book is a useful addition to the literature on time, particularly as it reveals the influence of modern science on the way a philosopher thinks. ( New Scientist)

Price is a philosopher with a real grasp of fundamental physics. He offers an original slant on some profound issues, where our understanding has advanced little since the time of St Augustine. His book is not an easy read, but should trigger lively debate about whether he has introduced new paradoxes as stubborn as those he claims to exorcise. ( The Times)

Descripción Oxford University Press, 1996. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Huw Price's book, Time's Arrow and Archimedes' Point is an uncompromising study of temporal asymmetry from an atemporal point of view. The result is a sustained, careful, unfailingly lucid argument to some surprising conclusions."--Steven Savitt, British Journal for the Philosophy of Science"Huw Price, who became known as 'the philosopher who took on Stephen Hawking on the arrow of time' (Scientific American, Oct. 1989), has now formulated his own lucid account of this fundamental aspect of time and the concept of causality. He presents it in a marvelously clear and picturesque manner that allows even the layman to see the point of each part of the problem, and to understand its importance for the whole. I am convinced that this book willbecome a milestone of interdisciplinary debate in its best and fertile sense."--H. D. Zeh, author of The Physical Basis of the Direction of Time"Huw Price's Time's Arrow and Archimedes' Point provides a thoughtful (and thought-provoking) analysis of the time-asymmetry problem of physics which is in many ways deeper and more illuminating than accounts to be found elsewhere."--Roger Penrose, Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics, University of Oxford and author of Shadows of the Mind and The Emperor's New Mind"This is the best philosophical book on time that I have read. It is beautifully clear, precise but non-technical, and, once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down."--Robert Weingard, Professor of Philosophy, Rutgers"Huw Price is one of a handful of philosophers with a thorough grasp of the notorious arrow of time problem. In this challenging book, Price applies critical reasoning and penetrating insight to the current theories of physics and cosmology that have a bearing on this problem. Among the many ideas discussed here is the controversial claim that time's arrow would reverse in a recontracting universe."--Paul Davies, Professor of Natural Philosophy, TheUniversity of Adelaide, and author of About Time and The Physics of Time Asymmetry"Particularly illuminating in that Price shows how philosophers and physicists have failed to see temporal symmetries because of the influence of their own temporally asymmetric perspective. A real advance in the interpretation of quantum mechanics. Not only philosophers of science but also theoretical physicists should be excited about this lovely book."--J.J.C. Smart, Emeritus Professor, Australian National University. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0195100956
