Description

Dramatic discoveries at the frontiers of physics and biology have opened up an entirely new perspective on ourselves and the nature of the cosmos we inhabit. Scientists are rejecting the machine paradigm in favour of a physical reality in which concepts such as chaos, self-organization, adaptation and information flow are the key indicators. This survey examines the revolutionary transformation that is overtaking scientific thinking. From quantum theory of relativity to the latest ideas about the birth of the cosmos, they find evidence for a massive shift in emphasis and provide an advance glimpse of 21st-century science. Paul Davies also wrote "God and the New Physics" and "The Cosmic Blueprint". John Gribbin is the author of "In Search of Schrodinger's Cat" and "In Search of the Big Bang".show more
