Product description

Review

"Lee [Smolin] is a brilliant, original thinker."―Roger Penrose

"[Smolin] argues lucidly and effectively that physicists should pause to reevaluate exactly what they mean when they use the words 'space' and 'time.' This is a deeply philosophical work."―New York Times Books Review

"A mix of science, philosophy, and science fiction, [this] is at once entertaining, thought-provoking, fabulously ambitious, and fabulously speculative."―New York Times

"This is real twenty-first century science."―Allen Lane, Independent
