This volume provides a fascinating snapshot of the future of physics, covering fundamental physics, at the frontiers of research. It comprises a wide variety of contributions from leading thinkers in the field, inspired by the pioneering work of John A. Wheeler. Quantum theory represents a unifying theme within the book, along with topics such as the nature of physical reality, the arrow of time, models of the universe, superstrings, gravitational radiation, quantum gravity and cosmic inflation. Attempts to formulate a final unification of physics are discussed, along with the existence of hidden dimensions of space, space-time singularities, hidden cosmic matter, and the strange world of quantum technology.

Review quote

'Do not be put off by its length ... this is one of those rare volumes where quantity is matched by quality ... this is a remarkable volume.' Nature 'In response to Einstein's question 'did God have any choice in the nature of his creation?', Wheeler has suggested that there are no truly fixed fundamental laws of physics at all. He was a remarkable man and this is a remarkable volume.' Nature 'The sheer breadth of the novel approaches in fundamental research is a testament to Wheeler's broad curiosity. I can only imagine that this book will be read by more great minds eager to plunge into the darkness to shed some light with a torch or even star.' Contemporary Physics
