Whitrow, G. J.

The Natural Philosophy of Time

  • First edition, first impression of this key work by the cosmologist and historian of science, J. G. Whitrow (1912-2000). Here Whitrow rejects the compartmentalization of time studies, arguing that time's scientific, philosophical, historical, and physiological aspects must be considered together. He presents the first comprehensive account of time theories through history and also states his own philosophical position on time and consciousness.
  • London & Edinburgh: Thomas Nelson and Sons Ltd., 1961. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine gilt, blue top-stain. With the dust jacket. Minor bump to upper corner, minor crease to preliminaries and faint spot to title. An excellent, fresh copy in the price-clipped jacket that is a little rubbed and frayed at the edges with some nicks and small chips.
