Reviews

"Only a wayfarer born under unruly stars would attempt to put into practice in our epoch of proliferating knowledge the Heraclitean dictum that `men who love wisdom must be inquirers into very many things indeed.'" Thus begins this remarkable interdisciplinary study of time by a master of the subject. And while developing a theory of "time as conflict," J. T. Fraser does offer "many things indeed"--an enormous range of ideas about matter, life, death, evolution, and value.

Review:

"This is an extremely valuable and unusual book--original, witty, and aware of immense ranges of contemporary thought."--David Park, Washington Post Book World

"This is an important book about an important subject, the nature of time. . . . [Fraser] draws upon the spectrum of disciplines and illustrates that the theme of time can provide a common ground for discourse between specializations. The coverage is wide, and the book is tightly packed with information, but Fraser's driving enthusiasm makes it interesting and enriching."--Francis C. Haber, American Scientist
