TIME TRAVEL: JAMES GLEICK
According 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.
