Adrian Bardon's A Brief History of the Philosophy of Time is a short introduction to the history, philosophy, and science of the study of time-from the pre-Socratic philosophers through Einstein and beyond.
A Brief History of the Philosophy of Time covers subjects such as time and change, the experience of time, physical and metaphysical approaches to the nature of time, the direction of time, time travel, time and freedom of the will, and scientific and philosophical approaches to eternity and the beginning of time. Bardon employs helpful illustrations and keeps technical language to a minimum in bringing the resources of over 2500 years of philosophy and science to bear on some of humanity's most fundamental and enduring questions.
Adrian Bardon is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Wake Forest University, where he teaches courses on the philosophy of space and time and the history of modern philosophy. He is the author of numerous scholarly articles on time and the history of philosophy; he is also the editor of The Futureof the Philosophy of Time (2012) and co-editor of the forthcoming A Companion to the Philosophy of Time.
