During this attractive and funny booklet, eminent social psychologist Robert Levine explores a size of our adventure that we take without any consideration - our adventure of time. Taking us on a fascinating journey throughout the a long time and worldwide, we go back and forth to Brazil, the place to be 3 hours overdue is completely applicable, and to Japan, the place he unearths a feeling of the long term that's remarkable within the West, in addition to to distant places on the earth the place 'nature time', the rhythms of the solar and the seasons, is the single time to dwell through.

Example text

Physics was a subject for which Planck himself felt he had no particular talent, but he had risen through the academic ranks and established a solid international reputation. Now in his early forties, he worked at a slow, steady, and conservative pace. He preferred the stability and predictability of a science which reflected the character of the bourgeois German society of which he was a part. By his own subsequent admission he was ‘peacefully inclined’, and rejected ‘all doubtful adventures’. During a visit to Planck’s villa in the Berlin suburb of the Grünewald on 7 October 1900, experimental physicist Heinrich Rubens had told him about some new experimental results he had obtained with his associate Ferdinand Kurlbaum.

Planck had used a statistical procedure, distributing the fixed energy elements over the oscillators, without giving much thought to the physical significance of this step. If atoms and molecules were real entities, something Planck was now ready to accept, then in his own mind energy itself remained determinedly continuous, to flow uninterrupted back and forth between radiation and matter. But in deriving his radiation law, Planck had inadvertently introduced the idea that energy itself could be ‘quantized’.

He started work there the following March. ’ Bohr initially set to work on experiments on the absorption of alphaparticles by aluminium. But experimental physics was not his forte, and after a few weeks he asked Rutherford if he could instead work on theoretical problems. Although Rutherford took a keen interest in the various research programmes and the work of his associates, he was busy writing a book on the physics of radioactive substances and had little time for extensive discussions. Bohr learnt what he needed about radioactivity from two Manchester colleagues, George von Hevesy and Charles Darwin (whom Bohr would always introduce to others as the grandson of the ‘real’ Darwin).
