Publication Date:




An exploration of the power of the profound but fleeting experiences at the root of most interpersonal relationships.
Beginning with the claim that we are psychologically alive only in the "now," readers are invited to reconsider their day-to-day experiences. Certain moments of shared immediate experience--such as a knowing glance across a dinner table--are paradigmatic of what Stern shows to be at the core of human experience, the three to five seconds he identifies as "the present moment." This book offers a novel response to the age-old questions about the passage of time, what the future offers, and how humans change during the course of their lives.
