2019 - 「我們都是時間旅人:時間機器如何推動科學進展,影響21世紀的人類生活」新書介紹、林進韋 專訪(時報出版、作者:詹姆斯.葛雷易克 James Gleick)

fb新鮮事-全台最強廣播節目

本集主題:「我們都是時間旅人:時間機器如何推動科學進展,影響21世紀的人類生活」新書介紹專訪企劃:林進韋內容簡介:改變過去X回到未來當代科普大師葛雷易克打造現代歷史、哲學、文學、影視和科學中的時間文化誌◆ H•G•威爾斯的《時間機器》,告訴我們動動按鈕就能回到一萬年後?◆殺死希特勒,卻無法改變死傷慘重的第二次世界大戰?◆費茲傑羅讓班傑明的生老病死順序與常人相反!◆伍迪•艾倫讓現代人穿越百年與海明威當朋友!◎ 推動百年科學進展的,始自H‧G‧威爾斯的《時間機器》?人類原本活在當下,但當十九世紀末,H‧G‧威爾斯寫下《時間機器》、將時間與旅行兩字結合一起,人類自此打開了對於時間軸的想像。時間不再像箭般往前奔射,我們透過遠觀過去和千百年後的樣貌,改變了對時間的認知,展開了二十世紀物理學的華麗序幕。想像宇宙裡存在無數個時間裂縫,我們只要找到其中一個就能改變世界。改寫歷史甚至開拓新世界的夢想,讓愛因斯坦、艾丁頓、惠勒、霍金等理論物理學家無不懷抱希望,紛紛提出重力場、蛀孔理論、多重宇宙等新學說,可以說,時間機器不只存在文學裡、也不是瘋狂科學家的兒時夢想,學術圈的熱烈討論促成近代物理理論和實驗的無數進展。◎ 如果可以重新定義「時間」,「我們」會是什麼樣子?殺死希特勒能不能改變二戰結果?如果世界即將毀滅,回到過去有沒有可能找到解決辦法?住在時間機器裡會不會變老?「過去」與「未來」有沒有可能同時存在於另一個時空?一個世紀以來,文學再度奪回人類想像力的主導權,從吳爾芙的《歐蘭朵》、費茲傑羅的〈班傑明的奇幻旅程〉、波赫士的《歧路花園》,到海萊因的《4=71》、查爾斯•游的《時光機器與消失的父親》,時間不再是單線道,而是無限多重的分岔路,文學超越科學,如同H‧G‧威爾斯,再度領先於物理的進展。繼暢銷書《混沌》後,葛雷易克在時間系統化和全球時區化的今天,探索為何現今物理學仍要追索時間的本質,以及當代影視文化中懷念過去和渴望未來的時間旅人為何不曾斷絕。在這本時間的觀念史裡,他認為現實生活中早有「時間機器」:人們跟著全球時區所規定的時間作息,往前往後都有明確時間座標可循。從那時開始,時間感就是人類文化中不可或缺的一部分,對「歷史時間」敏感更是近來的事,我們如此汲汲營營打造時間膠囊和歷史博物館,當中都藏有人類對活在當下的困惑,以及對回到過去美好年代的盼望。時間機器不只是一本書、一種觀念,也是一種科技物,改變過去、回到未來的渴望促成了時間膠囊的發明、蛀孔旅行的新技術,甚至在二十一世紀的今天,推特(twitter)上的古人都有自己的穿越帳號,他們穿越來的生命都將會活得比真實中的我們更長久。作者簡介:詹姆斯.葛雷易克 James Gleick全球知名科普作家,長期關注科學、科技及文化影響力議題。1954年出生於紐約,1976年畢業於哈佛大學,在《紐約時報》擔任編輯及記者職務達十年。多年來為《紐約時報》科技專欄「Fast Forward Column」撰稿,1989~1990年間曾擔任普林斯頓大學麥格羅名人講座講師(McGraw Distinguished Lecturer)。他也是《全美最佳科普文選》叢書第一位編輯,並於2017年當選美國作家協會會長。2012年出版暢銷書《資訊:一段歷史、一個理論、一股洪流》,並獲得英國皇家協會科普書獎。他的第一本書《混沌:不測風雲的背後》入圍美國國家書卷獎及普立茲獎決選,「蝴蝶效應」等複雜理論觀念自此廣為人知,並在世界各地掀起一股討論的熱潮。其他知名暢銷科普著作包括《理查・費曼:天才的軌跡》、《牛頓傳》、《毫秒必爭——全面加速的時代》(Faster)、《方才之事》(What Just Happened)都曾入圍普立茲獎決選,翻譯成三十國語言出版。

James Gleick reads from ‘Time Travel’

The Seattle Public Library - Author Readings and Library Events

Listen to an exploration of time travel ‘s subversive origins, its evolution in literature and science, and its influence on our understanding of time itself with the author of the groundbreaking bestseller “Chaos.” Author James Gleick's story begins at the turn of the 20th century with the young H. G. Wells writing and rewriting the fantastic tale that became his first book, an international sensation, “The Time Machine.” A host of forces were converging to transmute the human understanding of time, some philosophical and some technological—the electric telegraph, the steam railroad, the discovery of buried civilizations and the perfection of clocks. -- Gleick tracks the evolution of time travel as an idea in the culture—from Marcel Proust to “Doctor Who,” from Woody Allen to Jorge Luis Borges. He explores the inevitable looping paradoxes and examines the porous boundary between pulp fiction and modern physics. Finally, he delves into a temporal shift that is unsettling our own moment: the instantaneous wired world, with its all-consuming present and vanishing future. -- A review of “Time Travel” in Kirkus Reviews says: “From Wells to Schrödinger to Twitter, [Gleick] doesn’t miss a beat, and he imparts a wry appreciation for humorous detail, making him one of the most enjoyable science writers in the field.” You won’t want to miss this informative, entertaining look at time travel. -- James Gleick’s books include three Pulitzer Prize finalists “Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman,” “Isaac Newton” and “Chaos: Making a New Science” (also a National Book Award finalist), as well as “The Information,” "What Just Happened” and "Faster." He was the first editor of the Best American Science Writing series.

James Gleick: Time Travel

Word Christchurch Festival

16 May 2017 | Presented as part of the WORD Christchurch Autumn Season in association with Auckland Writers FestivalWhen Stephen Hawking once famously held a cocktail party for time travellers and nobody showed up, he said it proved time travel was not possible. But is it? If you have a lifelong fascination with time travel, or even just a passing curiosity about it, this event is for you. James Gleick, leading science communicator and author of Time Travel: A History, gives a mind-bending exploration of this fascinating subject: its subversive origins, its evolution in literature and science, and its influence on our understanding of time itself. From H.G. Wells to Doctor Who, from pulp fiction to modern physics, Gleick explores as many facets of time travel as possible in just one hour. Chaired by San Francisco State University Professor Daniel Bernardi, visiting University of Canterbury film and media studies scholar, science fiction expert and documentary filmmaker.

Time Travel: James Gleick (2017)

Auckland Writers Festival

AUCKLAND WRITERS FESTIVAL 2017According to science writer and polymathic thinker James Gleick, H.G. Wells was the first to combine the words ‘time’ and ‘travel’, thus creating an entirely new mode of thought. Gleick’s latest book Time Travel: A History distils literary criticism, philosophy, and physics in an investigation of our obsession with the moving, bending and twisting of time. With Graeme Hill, this multi-award-winning author of Isaac Newton, Chaos: Making A New Science, and The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood, discusses the writing of science and why, sadly, time travel does not and cannot exist.​Supported by Royal Society Te Apārangi​​

James Gleick: Time Travel

Long Now: Seminars About Long-term Thinking

The problem of the unknowable future is matched by the problem of the unchangeable past. Both are solved by the dream of time travel. The peculiarities and paradoxes of time travel are explored in imaginative detail in science fiction, even though it doesn’t exist, or maybe especially because it doesn’t exist. Grappling with the idea helps humans engage with a dimension of profound human powerlessness and also invites deeper thinking about what actually can be known about the past and what actually can be done about the future.James Gleick’s meditation on time covers how time is experienced psychologically, how artists such as Borges, Proust, and Wells create with it, how religions conjure eternity, how cosmology probes forking universes, and how so much comes down to the nature of “now.”Science historian Gleick is the author of Chaos (1987), Isaac Newton (2003), The Information (2011), and Time Travel: A History (2016).
