Debating Time

jcanalesIn 1922, two famous men publically debated the nature of time. Albert Einstein was gaining attention for his theory of relativity, the mathematics of which suggested several strange, non-intuitive properties of time.  At the same time, the philosopher Henri Bergson was widely known for theorizing that time is intrinsically tied to human consciousness. On this episode, Jimena Canales discussed the debate that changed both men’s legacies and continues to shape the way we understand time today.

Time is relative? 😉
