THE NATURE OF TIME

AN OPEN QUESTION BETWEEN PHYSICS AND PHILOSOPHY

December, 12th
3 pm-7 pm
Venue: Aula Fermi, Centro Ricerche Enrico Fermi
Entrance from: Piazza del Viminale 1, 00184 Roma

 

The Enrico Fermi Study and Research Center (CREF) will host a workshop exploring concepts and theories about the nature of time in Physics and Philosophy.
The passage of time is one of the most straightforward aspects of human perception. Yet, its profound nature has been investigated and questioned by philosophers and scientists throughout the history of human thought.

From the absolute concept of time proposed by Isaac Newton to the relativistic one formulated by Albert Einstein and the more recent attempts of quantum gravity to reach a unified theory between the theory of general relativity and quantum mechanics, modern physics has not yet found a definitive way to explain which is the true nature of time.
With the help of experts in theoretical physics and philosophy, we will open a debate about one of the most fascinating and difficult questions in the human quest for the meaning of reality.
