'An outstanding collection of essays on a significant topic of wide concern. The authors are leaders in their fields, and they provide a cross section of current advanced thinking about time in several disciplines and attempt to define common ground in a genuinely transdisciplinary category. Specialists in each of the disciplines covered should welcome the book for the original material in their areas but also, and even more eagerly, for seeing how their concerns with time intersect with those of neighboring disciplines. Everybody will find something new and valuable.'Paul Alkon, University of Southern California
