9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By David Milliern on October 12, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While I disagree with some of Huggett's thoughts, this book is an instant classic. Rarely, do you get a scholar of this ilk to come down to the layman, as he does in this work. While speaking with great simplicity, Huggett conveys very complicated ideas in a book that is formatted much like a popular physics book. Never will you read a book so leisurely and learn so much. Very accessible.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By W. Cheung on October 4, 2013
Format: Paperback
No previous knowledge of physics or mathematics is required to read this book, which describes the nature of space and time in the context of accepted scientific theories of how the world works. The emphasis is on how both space and time can be relational rather than absolute and substantial. The intuitive concept of the present is hence challenged. The author favors eternalism as opposed to presentism. The relevance of general and special relativity is duly discussed. The last chapters are on identity based on dependencies, and they are also illuminating. One does not have to agree with the book's various conclusions to enjoy its arguments.
