The Arrow of Time

The issues addressed by pre-Socratic philosophers such as Heraclitus and Parmenides about whether time 'flows' or not prefigure present day philosophical arguments. In his talk to the Blackheath Philosophy Forum Huw Price chose as his starting point the views of cosmologist Sir Arthur Eddington - a prominent figure in the first half of the 20th century, but little known today.

What made Eddington's view of time interesting is that he was prepared to part company with most physicists - who conceive time as it is revealed in the laws of physics - and give credence to our subjective perceptions about time, particularly our perception that time passes (or 'goes on' in his terms). The 'passage' view accords with our commonsense intuitions: that there is a past, present and future - each with a different ontological status.

The present moves forward into the future resulting in an ever enlarging past. Science: A New Map of the Human Brain. Instead of TV, you should watch... Modern IQ ranges for various occupations. Gbrainy. Gbrainy is a brain teaser game and trainer to have fun and to keep your brain trained.

(You might be doing this already!) Web 2.0 Science Tools. By Laura Turner The following web2.0 sites would be useful for science educators at the high school and middle school level.

Web 2.0 Science Tools

Some would also be appropriate for higher elementary grade levels. There are many new ‘tools’ or websites that take advantage of the higher speed and bandwidth of today’s Internet. Web 1.0 tools/websites were text based and web2.0 tools/websites are designed for full-motion video, 3D animations and are generally interactive in some manner.

Archive (Appropriate for Grades 6-12): MythBusters Live MythBusters Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage shared their experiences as they make experimentation come alive through this dynamic presentation about science behind the exhibit.


The interactive exhibit, created by Discovery Communications and Exhibits Development Group (EDG), in partnership with the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, helps inspire learning beyond the walls of the classroom. Scientists, engineers, and mathematicians drive innovation that will fuel our future. This live event will spark the natural curiosity of budding scientists by showing students just how fun science can be and how it’s helped Adam and Jamie follow their passion to ultimately find success.
