Search - List of Books by Time

Time has been defined as the continuum in which events occur in succession from the past to the present and on to the future.Time has also been defined as a one-dimensional quantityused to sequence events, to quantify the duration of events and the intervals between them, and (used together with other quantities such as space) to quantify and measure the motion of objects and other changes.Time is quantified in comparative terms (such as longer, shorter, faster, quicker, slower) or in numerical terms using units (such as seconds, minutes, hours, days).Time has been a major subject of religion, philosophy, and science, but defining it in a non-controversial manner applicable to all fields of study has consistently eluded the greatest scholars.

Time is one of the seven fundamental physical quantities in the International System of Units. Time is used to define other quantities ... such as velocity ... so defining time in terms of such quantities would result in circularity of definition.An operational definition of time, wherein one says that observing a certain number of repetitions of one or another standard cyclical event (such as the passage of a free-swinging pendulum) constitutes one standard unit such as the second, is highly useful in the conduct of both advanced experiments and everyday affairs of life. The operational definition leaves aside the question whether there is something called time, apart from the counting activity just mentioned, that flows and that can be measured. Investigations of a single continuum called spacetime bring questions about space into questions about time, questions that have their roots in the works of early students of natural philosophy.

Ray Cummings, an early writer of science fiction, wrote in 1922, "Time is what keeps everything from happening at once",a sentence repeated by scientists such as C. J. Overbeck,and John Archibald Wheeler.
