How do we understand the nature of time? Do we do so in terms of our ordering of time according to clocks, the latest scientific theory, or in terms of our own experience of it? Can we understand the notion of time beginning? These are some of the questions we will examine in this course through the work of, amongst others, Stephen Hawkins (A Brief History of Time) and Eva Hoffman (‘Time’).
