Summary
"A World Without Time places Godel and Einstein's epoch-making discoveries in the context of the great and disturbing movements in physics, philosophy, logic, mathematics and the arts that dominated the twentieth century. It presents a poignant and intimate account of the friendship between these two magnificent thinkers, each put on the shelf by the scientific fashions of their day - and ours - and attempts to rescue Godel's brilliant work from undeserved obscurity. Inspired by Einstein, Kurt Godel made clear for the first time the truly revolutionary nature of the theory of relativity, which to this day is hardly recognized."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
