Time Reborn: Lee Smolin Public Lecture

What is time? Is our perception of time passing an illusion which hides a deeper, timeless reality? Or is it real, indeed, the most real aspect of our experience of the world? Perimeter Institute Faculty member Lee Smolin examines these and other timely questions from his book Time Reborn during his April, 2013 Perimeter Institute Public Lecture.

Smolin’s new book, co-authored with Roberto Mangabeira Unger, is The Singular Universe and the Reality of Time. Find it here:
