“The book The Illusions of Time is very well-structured and this structure helps understanding enormously. … Even if you are not a psychologist, neuroscientist or philosopher, all the contributions herein are understandable; the illustrations are particularly illuminating. … It is certainly not intended to be a conclusion, but rather an inventory of what certain sciences know at present. That is exactly what the book is good for, to question what we take for granted when talking about ‘time.’” (Kerstin Cuhls, Kronoscope, Issue 21, 2021)
