LSE Research Showcase: Can what is done be undone? On irreversibility in people and particles
29 November, 11:00 am – 11:30 am
Why do we become older but not younger? Remember yesterday but not tomorrow? How should we change our behaviour when we can’t take it back? These are all questions about the arrow of time, that curious asymmetry between the past and the future. Answering them is an adventure in science and philosophy, from people to particles, involving questions you may have wondered about but never thought you could begin to understand. At this event, LSE philosopher of physics Dr Bryan Roberts draws on his new monograph (Reversing the Arrow of Time) to help introduce how philosophers and scientists have been making progress on the nature of time and its arrow.
