Dan Falk – The Enigma of Time

Time is at once intimately familiar and yet deeply mysterious. We say it flows like a river, yet that “flow” seems to disappear under scientific scrutiny. No wonder poets, philosophers, and physicists have grappled with the enigma of time for centuries. In this illustrated talk – adapted from his second book, In Search of Time – science journalist Dan Falk looks at the history, physics, and philosophy of time from Aristotle to Einstein and beyond.

DAN FALK is an award-winning science journalist based in Toronto, Canada.  His writing credits include Scientific AmericanNew ScientistSmithsonianNational Geographic, and many other publications. He’s written three popular science books, most recently The Science of Shakespeare. Dan is also the co-host of BookLab, a podcast that reviews popular science books. In 2011 he was a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and in 2019 he was awarded the Fleming Medal for Excellence in Science Communication.
