About this book

Available for the first time in English, the author, one of France's most distinguished science writers, offers a unique examination of the evolution of our universe, from the Big Bang through successive stages of complexity to the emergence of societies capable of developing the H-bomb. The author advocates neither blind optimism nor bleak pessimism, but rather hope, and a belief that delight is the antidote to despair. (Translated from French).
