The third book of the Series De las Ciencias a la Filosofía has been published.
Even though we move through space in every direction, in time we can only go from the past to the future: we grow older without remedy; we cannot change what happened; we remember the past but we make projects for the future. Why does time show an unidirectionality that none of the three spatial dimensions possess? Can physico-chemical sciences account for this ‘arrow of time’? Ilya Prigogine, Nobel Prize for Chemistry, busied himself with this problem throughout his entire life as a scientist.
The book deals with the search for the arrow of time through the work of Prigogine, who developed his thought between science and philosophy.
