Direction of Time (Reprint) (Paperback)
about this item
This edited book presents the problems of time and direction from an interdisciplinary point of view, concentrating in particular on the following relations:
• Time and physics• Time, philosophy and psychology• Time, mathematics and information theory
It is a unique contribution by philosophers and scientists who are active in mathematics, physics, biology, engineering, information theory and psychology. Questions such as the existence of a Big Bang, the neurobiological basis regarding the coexistence of free will and determinism, intercultural aspects of time, mathematical models of time, psychopathological features of time, and micro reversibility versus macroscopic irreversibility are studied. It also provides a truly interdisciplinary study of the problematic 'arrow of time'.
