Time, the Familiar Stranger by J.T. Fraser

| /

No part of existence is more intimately familiar, yet more elusive and mysterious, than time. This wide-ranging, learned, and accessible book surveys the enormous variety of our understandings of time, both in the everyday world and in the specialized realms of the sciences and humanities. From the majestic visions of time and the timeless in major religions, derived from ordinary activity, J.T.Fraser offers the general reader a history of the idea and experience of time.
