Summary What is time? The 5th century philosopher St Augustine famously said that he knew what time was, as long as no one asked him. Introducing Time traces our understanding of time, from Augustine's suggestion that there is no time, to the flowing time of Newton, the conventional time of Poincare, the static time of Einstein, and then back, full circle, to the idea that there is no time in quantum gravity.
