About the Book

Blending science with an evocative narrative, Christopher Dewdney takes readers on a fascinating journey to the most elusive and fluid of the dimensions lying within human perception: time.

 

As he did with the hours between dusk and dawn in Acquainted with the Night, Dewdney unlocks all of today, tomorrow and yesterday through his wide-ranging narrative. He shows how time has been imagined through the ages in mythology, philosophy, art and science, answering the questions that have engaged inquiring minds since before recorded history. Why does time flow in only one direction? Is time travel actually possible? Why does time go faster the higher you are from the earth’s surface?


Spun out across the seasons of a year and through encounters with friends, family and strangers, Soul of the World offers extraordinary insights into the nature of time and its influence on us.
