The Janus Point: A New Theory of Time

by Julian Barbour

ISBN: 9781784706678

What is time? The Janus Point offers a ground-breaking solution to one of the greatest mysteries in physics.

For over a century, the greatest minds have sought to understand why time seems to flow in one direction, ever forward. In The Janus Point, Julian Barbour offers a radically new answer: it doesn't.

At the heart of this book, Barbour provides a new vision of the Big Bang - the Janus Point - from which time flows in two directions, its currents driven by the expansion of the universe and the growth of order in the galaxies, planets and life itself. What emerges is not just a revolutionary new theory of time, but a hopeful argument about the destiny of our universe.
