**The Far Horizons of Time: Time and Mind in the Universe**

by H. Chris Ransford

**Publisher**: De Gruyter Open Ltd 2015**ISBN/ASIN**: B01K0UHGUG**Number of pages**: 112

**Description**:

What is Time? Assuming no prior specialized knowledge by the reader, the book raises specific, hitherto overlooked questions about how time works, such as how and why anyone can be made to be, at the very same instant, simultaneous with events that are actually days apart. It examines abiding issues in the physics of time or at its periphery which still elude a full explanation.
