Encyclopedia of Time: Science, Philosophy, Theology, & Culture

"With a strong interdisciplinary approach to a subject that does not lend itself easily to the reference format, this work may not seem to support directly academic programs beyond general research, but it is a more thorough and up-to-date treatment than Taylor and Francis's 1994 Encyclopedia of Time. Highly recommended."
-Library Journal STARRED Review
