What Is Time?
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Carlo Rovelli, Centre de Physique Théorique de Aix-Marseille Université et Université de ToulonTime is a mystery that does not cease to puzzle us. Philosophers, artists, and poets have long explored its meaning while scientists have found that its structure is different from the simple intuition we have of it. From Boltzmann to quantum theory, from Einstein to loop quantum gravity, our understanding of time has been undergoing radical transformations. Time flows at a different speed in different places, the past and the future differ far less than we might think, and the very notion of the present evaporates in the vast universe.
The presentation is free and open to the public. However, we ask that attendees from outside the Bard community reserve a seat by emailing Hal Haggard (email@example.com). Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
