Causality, Time and the Experiment Paradox

Jim talks to Michal Eckstein of the Coperincus Center for Interdisciplinary Studies on how two different ways to order events, that of chronology (this comes before that) and causality (this makes that happen) come together to define time. We then go on to discuss the Experiment Paradox, which pulls together a number of measurement paradoxes in physics.
