dc.description.abstractThe aim of this interdisciplinary study is to reconstruct the evolution of our changing conceptions of time in the light of scientific discoveries. It will adopt a new perspective and organize the material around three central themes, which run through our history of time reckoning: cosmology and regularity; stasis and flux; symmetry and asymmetry. It is the physical criteria that humans choose ¿ relativistic effects and time-symmetric equations or dynamic-kinematic effects and asymmetric conditions ¿ that establish our views on the nature of time. This book will defend a dynamic rather than a static view of time.en_US
