This epilogue acknowledges the scope and limitations of our study of time. It reiterates our view that any proper study of the subject should follow two strict principles or guidelines. First, because time is a physical phenomenon, all debate about it should be based on the fundamental scientific principle of empirical validation, as encapsulated by the great motto of the Royal Society of London, ‘nullius in verba’ (take no one’s word for it). Second, all propositions in science should be contextually complete. The epilogue emphasizes the contribution of great thinkers, such as Aristotle, Galileo, Newton, Hume, Einstein, and many others, upon whose collective thoughts and works this book is based. It concludes with some perspectives for further research into time.

Keywords:   scope and limitations, scientific principles, nullius in verba, contextual completeness, great thinkers, perspectives
