Time to Tell: A Look at How We Tick event image
Leeds Salon is hosting two summer ‘Tetley Talks’ on the themes of ‘Time & Data’. In this first talk, author Ronald Green discusses his new book, _Time to Tell: a look at how we tick_. Time seems to flash by when we are enjoying ourselves, and slows to a crawl when we are bored. Why? Does time exist, or is it an illusion? Does it flow? Is it linear? How real are our memories? When is now? These are just some of the questions asked by Ronald Green in his latest book _Time to Tell: a look at how we tick_. In _Time to Tell_, Ronald shows a perspective of time that challenges what is naturally taken for granted (as, for example, the existence of 'now', the supposed closed pastand open future), and forges a link between philosophy and science, blowing away the cobwebs that obscure both from each other. Rattling the comfort of instant satisfaction of reality shows, celebrity worship and the self-glorification of the I-generation, Ronald takes us on a journey that allows us a new way of looking at ourselves in the world, and to act upon what we discover. Ronald Green Is a former lecturer in linguistics and the author of _Time To Tell: a look at how we tick_ [https://www.amazon.co.uk/Time-Tell-look-how-tick/dp/178535695X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1548673447&sr=8-1&keywords=ronald+green+time] (iff Books, 2018) and _Nothing Matters: a book about nothing_ [https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nothing-Matters-Book-About/dp/1846947073/ref=la_B0034OAGBW_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1548673514&sr=1-2] (iff Books, 2011).
