📙 Encyclopedia of time: science, philosophy, theology, & culture by H. James Birx — free pdf


''With a strong interdisciplinary approach to a subject that does not lend itself easily to the reference format, this work may not seem to support directly academic programs beyond general research, but it is a more thorough and up-to-date treatment than Taylor and Francis’s 1994 Encyclopedia of Time. Highly recommended.''-Library Journal STARRED ReviewSurveying the major facts, concepts, theories, and speculations that infuse our present comprehension of time, the Encyclopedia of Time: Science, Philosophy, Theology, & Culture explores the contributions of scientists, philosophers, theologians, and creative artists from ancient times to the present.

Dostoevsky, Francesco Petrarch, H. G. Wells, and numerous other authors * Contains the contributions of naturalists and religionists, including astronomers, cosmologists, physicists, chemists, geologists, paleontologists, anthropologists, psychologists, philosophers, and theologians * Includes artists’ portrayals of the fluidity of time, including painter Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory and The Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus, and writers Gustave Flaubert’s The Temptation of Saint Anthony and Henryk Sienkiewicz’s Quo Vadis * Provides a truly interdisciplinary approach, with discussions of Aztec, Buddhist, Christian, Egyptian, Ethiopian, Hindu, Islamic, Navajo, and many other cultures’ conceptions of time
