Overview

This monumental publication is one of the most important, high-profile books published to mark the millennium, examining the very subject that gives the millennium its meaning: time. Multidisciplinary and cross-cultural in its subject-matter and approach, and all-encompassing in its scope, the book is written by an outstanding international cast of authors, including Umberto Eco and Sir Ernst Gombrich, each one a renowned expert from the fields of science, art, history, philosophy or culture.

Lavishly illustrated with objects from all corners of the world, from ancient Egyptian and Babylonian calendars and Titian’s allegories to the distorted-clock paintings of Salvador Dalí and recent photographs of deep space taken by the Hubble telescope, The Story of Time questions people’s perceptions of time and reflects the many ways in which cultures around the world have responded to time, measured time and expressed their understanding of time.
