Publisher's Comments

What does it mean to say that time and space are relative? How can an electron be in two places at once? Dealing with these questions, this book provides an understanding of the physical processes that define the universe. It also brings in relevant passages from philosophy to demonstrate how these ideas have impacted the world of thought.
