The Mystery of Time

Monday, May 3, 2010 at 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Homewood 3400 N Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA

The Mystery of TimeTime is one of the most familiar elements of our lives. But once we start asking the simplest questions, it becomes obvious that we understand very little. Aristotle viewed time as a measurement of change and motion. Newton instructs us that there is a single, absolute time. Einstein revolutionized this idea by telling us that time can run slower or faster depending on speed and gravity. So where do we look to understand time? Science? Philosophy? Religion? In this course, we will attempt to unravel the puzzle by engaging various disciplines to raise important questions regarding the nature of time and attempt to make sense of the evidence.
