Or is it?
The examination of the foundations of physics is very much in vogue right now. And rightfully so! Physics is up against insurmountable challenges both on the large scale of cosmology and the small scale of quantum mechanics. This has led many to if not challenge, then at least give a second look to some of the foundations, the axioms, upon which physics is built; time is one such foundation.
This book is simply the BEST compilation of modern thought on time and a worthy followup to oxfords 1970's "Readings on the philosophy of time" https://www.amazon.com/Philosophy-Time-Oxford-Readings/dp/0198239998 .
Lest you think that philosophy has no place in science, the chapters on relativity and quantum mechanics and how we view time in those regimes may change your mind.
In short, if you are not satisfied merely asking "What time is it?" and want to explore the deeper question of "What time is", then this is the book for you!
