 TIME AND ETERNAL CHANGE 

J. MCKIM MALVILLE

1990, xi+112pp., bibl., ISBN: 81-207-1288-9, Rs 150 (HB)


Time and change are inseparable partners. Without the rhythm (time) of the changing seasons, the slow death of our sun or the outward movements of galaxies there would be no flow of time. As an astro­ physicist and a student of myth and archaeoastronomy the author guides the reader through a variety of metaphors of time and change, demonstrating how many ancient intuitions about the nature of time have found expression in modern physics and astromony.

Depending upon the nature of change, time may be experienced as cyclic or linear expressed by metaphors of ocean, river, moon and arrow as well as myths. Throughout this remarkable synthesis of myth and science the reader is presented with intuitions about our restless cosmos which span centuries and cultures.
