By: Steven Weinberg
283 pages, no illustrations
Each of these essays, which span 15 years, struggles in one way or another with the necessity of facing up to the discovery that the laws of nature are impersonal, with no hint of a special status for human beings.
Illuminating and entertaining. [The essays] range across many subjects where Weinberg has points to make or turf to defend. There are excursions into quantum physics, cosmology, the history of science, and science's relationships with politics and religion. - The Economist "Lucidly written...with a gentle humor that does not hide [Weinberg's] strong convictions on science, philosophy and religion. I unreservedly recommend it, not only to scientists but to all who share his beliefs in the contribution that science has made, and will continue to make, to the way we see ourselves and our world." - Brian Pippard, Times Literary Supplement
