The Speed of LightThe Speed of Light

Constancy and Cosmos

David Grandy

Narrated by Michael Lenz

Available from Audible


Book published by Indiana University Press


Light—our experience of light, our measurement of light, and the notion that light speed is constant—can be understood to mark our interface with the cosmos. David A. Grandy's book moves from the scientific to the existential, from Einstein to Merleau-Ponty, from light as a phenomenon to light as that which is constitutive of reality. To measure the speed of light is to measure something about the way we are measured or blended into the cosmos, and that universal blending predetermines our measurement of light speed in favor of a universal or constant value. It's quite a trip, one aimed at scientists who have pondered light speed constancy, philosophers inclined to question the idea that mind and world are distinct, and scientifically or philosophically inclined persons who enjoy stretching themselves in new ways.

David Grandy is Professor of Philosophy at Brigham Young University and author of Everyday Quantum Reality, the audiobook edition of which is published by University Press Audiobooks.

REVIEWS:

“A brilliant and distinguished book ... Grandy introduces a trans-scientific understanding of light as a deep ordering principle within the universe.”

—Thaddeus J. Trenn, University of Toronto
