Description du produit
Revue de presse
“A well-researched meditation on how we see the future…. There’s one great question of time, one which of course this book cannot answer, but on which it gives a great deal of much-needed perspective: ‘How much do I have left?’ ” (Slate)
“…a fascinating foray into the idea that our experience of time is actively created by our own minds and how these sensations of what neuroscientists and psychologists call “mind time” are created.” (Maria Popova, BrainPickings)
“This lively introduction to the psychology of time perception is an intriguing take on the fluidity of reality.” (Publishers Weekly)
“This is an ideal read for those looking for science-based theories of time perception without the scientific jargon…. Despite the common belief that time moves at a constant pace, Hammond demonstrates how life’s circumstances can make minutes seem an eternity and decades the blink of an eye.” (Library Journal)
Présentation de l'éditeur
Drawing on the latest research from the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and biology, writer and broadcaster Claudia Hammond explores the mysteries of our perception of time in her book Time Warped.
Why does life seem to speed up as we get older? Why does the clock in your head move at a different speed from the one on the wall? Why is it almost impossible to go a whole day without checking your watch? Is it possible to retrain our brains and improve our relationship with it?
In Time Warped, Claudia Hammond offers insight into how to manage our time more efficiently, how to speed time up and slow it down at will, how to plan for the future with more accuracy, and she teaches how to use the warping of time to our own benefit.

Hammond looks at the role of the brain in time perception, noting effects such as the perceived slowing of time during episodes of fear or illness. She notes the differences in how people organize time in their mind--some people view the months of the year in circular fashion as with a clock, while others view them in the form of a line; some see themselves as moving through time, while others see time as moving toward them.
It is frequently observed that time seems to speed up as one gets older--the author examines this phenomenon and why most people can recall their lives from ages 15 to 25 more vividly than they can any other period. Time perception can also be skewed by vacations and periods of sickness, and the author also covers the topic of why we often underestimate the amount of time that has passed since events from the past.
It is a mark of human nature to be too optimistic with respect to our futures, and Hammond brings up the example of our underestimating the amount of time we will need to finish projects. The author notes how much wonderful or catastrophic events have on our long-term happiness and opines on whether we recall positive or negative events from the past more vividly.
Hammond even takes up the topic of whether animals can remember things, and closes this fascinating volume by offering suggestions to problems that the issue of time poses in people's lives.
