Description

Are there really laws of nature out there still waiting to be discovered? Or are they simply illusions?The Universe that Discovered Itself is a re-titled and wholly revised edition of The World Within the World, John Barrow's extraordinary study of how we view the universe. Ranging from long-ago societies up to tomorrow, and from the magical notions of primitive cultures up to the latest ideas about chaos, black holes, inflation, and superstrings, this book traces the development of our concept of what the laws of nature are and how we might come to know them. Entertaining and inspiring, it is a journey to the edge of space and time -- and in Barrow we have the ideal guide and companion.show more
