    Time 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.

    From the best-selling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics comes a new audiobook about the mind-bending nature of the universe. What are time and space made of? Where does matter come from? And what exactly is reality? Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his whole life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. Here he explains how our image of the world has changed throughout centuries.

    Una guida per tutti attraverso le rivoluzioni scientifiche che hanno sconvolto la fisica nel ventesimo secolo. Con folgorante chiarezza vengono qui spiegate la teoria della relatività generale di Einstein, la meccanica quantistica, i buchi neri, la complessa architettura dell'universo, le particelle elementari, la gravità e la natura del tempo e della mente: una limpida e divertente introduzione a quelle scoperte della fisica contemporanea che smentiscono ogni nostra percezione e intuizione immediata.

    Dans ses "Sept brèves leçons de physique", Carlo Rovelli confiait : qu'une question avait guidé sa vie de chercheur : la nature du temps. Se hissant sur les épaules d'Isaac Newton, d'Albert Einstein, de Stephen Hawking et de bien d'autres, il nous livre enfin ses découvertes dans ce livre majeur. Le temps est au cœur d'un étrange mystère. Tel un flocon de neige qui fond lorsqu'on s'en saisit, il s'est progressivement délité sous les assauts de la science : on sait dorénavant que le temps s'écoule plus lentement en plaine qu'en altitude.

    Mistero per profani e scienziati, la natura del tempo è l'oggetto di questo libro sorprendente. Un racconto delle diverse strade intraprese nel corso dei secoli per comprendere ciò di cui tutti facciamo esperienza in ogni istante. Un viaggio illuminante a partire da Anassimandro, passando per Newton e Einstein, fino ad arrivare alle più recenti teorie sulla gravità a loop e ad affacciarsi sul "grande oceano notturno e stellato di quello che ancora non sappiamo".

    "Von Natur aus wollen wir immer mehr wissen und immer weiter lernen. Unser Wissen über die Welt wächst. Uns treibt der Drang nach Erkenntnis und lernend stoßen wir an Grenzen. In den tiefsten Tiefen des Raumgewebes, im Ursprung des Kosmos, im Wesen der Zeit, im Schicksal der Schwarzen Löcher und im Funktionieren unseres eigenen Denkens. Hier, an den Grenzen unseres Wissens, wo sich das Meer unseres Nichtwissens vor uns auftut, leuchten das Geheimnis der Welt, die Schönheit der Welt, und es verschlägt uns den Atem.", schreibt Carlo Rovelli.
