What Is Time?
Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. -G.M.(?) Does time indeed fly (or flow)? What defines the arrow of time? Why can we remember the past but not the future? Is time, like space, continually being created? These are some of the questions we'll ponder in this course, based on a Great Courses series by Laura Helmuth, editor in chief of Scientific American, "Examining the big questions of time". (Spoiler alert: we won't find answers to these questions.) Craig Stephan is a retired industrial physicist who has led many previous OLLI courses including The End of Time, The Science of Climate Change, Cosmology, and Paleontology.
