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.
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.
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
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).
