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.
