The Order of Time

书名:The Order of Time
豆瓣评分: 9.3


The bestselling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics takes us on an enchanting, consoling journey to discover the meaning of time 'We are time. We are this space, this clearing opened by the traces of memory inside the connections between our neurons. We are memory. We are nostalgia. We are longing for a future that will not come.' Time is a mystery that does not cease to puzzle us. Philosophers, artists and poets have long explored its meaning while scientists have found that its structure is different from the simple intuition we have of it. From Boltzmann to quantum theory, from Einstein to loop quantum gravity, our understanding of time has been undergoing radical transformations. Time flows at a different speed in different places, the past and the future differ far less than we might think, and the very notion of the present evaporates in the vast universe. With his extraordinary charm and sense of wonder, bringing together science, philosophy and art, Carlo Rovelli unravels this mystery. Enlightening and consoling, The Order of Time shows that to understand ourselves we need to reflect on time — and to understand time we need to reflect on ourselves.


Carlo Rovelli, an Italian theoretical physicist, is the head of the quantum gravity group at the Centre de Physique Théorique of Aix-Marseille Université. He is one of the founders of the loop quantum gravity theory and author of the international bestseller Seven Brief Lessons on Physics, Reality Is Not What It Seems, and the forthcoming The Order of Time. Rovelli lives in Marseille, France.


@ 有耳 你们意大利人……(最后一部分的论证还是松散 怎么补上空缺是个值得思考的问题 @ 逆铭睡眼惺忪地 物理学家往往避谈哲学,而神棍们谈起前沿物理学又基本是胡说八道。本书则是真的由正经的理论物理学家从物理学前沿谈哲学,这就很有意思了。其实很多涉及的物理学知识我倒是从其他地方了解到过,比如时间膨胀效应、定域性原理对经典全局时间的颠覆,不过这方面收获最大的倒是对“熵”的概念的澄清。 @ 笑匠 云里雾里,拖拖沓沓…前几本明明都很喜欢,这一本却始终难以进入状态。也罢。 @ 阿紫 AudioBook read by Benedict Cumberbatch. My heart aches for the beauty of your voice! @ 毛豆吐蜜 第一部分是好的科普,第二部分有点凑字,第三部分像一个智者 @ 栗梨。 雖然後幾章開始有些許失去著力點 但還是毋庸置疑是2020年讀過最喜歡的書。 @ 阿基米德之镜 我喜欢开篇精炼通达的表述方式,但后面有的地方进入哲学就不太喜欢了。21年二刷吧 @ 慢慢的快进 何其幸运在25岁的尾声里读完这本书 @ wildsheepchase 想给十颗星。所有我最感兴趣的话题 – 时间、意识、记忆。。。 诗一样的语言。而且,我听的卷福英腔有声书。还有比这更完美的吗?! @ 掠食Bauhaus
