Is time real? What is the status of time in cosmology? Are physical laws timeless or could they evolve? Could changing our views about the status of time and laws in cosmology help us solve the problem of quantum gravity? This second session of the Boston Colloquium for Philosophy of Science will explore some of the fundamental questions raised by Lee Smolin's recent book Time Reborn.
