“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.
