The Order of Time
- Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch
- Written by: Carlo Rovelli
- Narrated by: Benedict Cumberbatch
- Length: 4 hrs and 18 mins
Time is a mystery that does not cease to puzzle us. Philosophers, artists and poets have long explored its meaning while scientists have found that its structure is different from the simple intuition we have of it. From Boltzmann to quantum theory, from Einstein to loop quantum gravity, our understanding of time has been undergoing radical transformations. Time flows at a different speed in different places, the past and the future differ far less than we might think, and the very notion of the present evaporates in the vast universe.
This book will change your perspective on life.

Scientific, philosophical, and poetical musings of Carlo Rovelli on Time(s) and temporality. This book is an absolute masterpiece. My only complaint is that the author didn't give enough credits to Kant even though his account of time (the common sense time) is nearly identical to that of Kant.
