About this book

In our search for truth, how far have we advanced? This uniquely human quest for good explanations has driven amazing improvements in everything from scientific understanding and technology to politics, moral values and human welfare. But will progress end, either in catastrophe or completion--or will it continue indefinitely? In this profound and seminal book, David Deutsch explores the furthest reaches of our current understanding, taking in the Infinity Hotel, supernovae and the nature of optimism, to instill in all of us a wonder at what we have achieved--and the fact that this is only the beginning of humanity's infinite possibility.

Media reviews
Experience the thrill of the highest level of discourse available on this planet ... This is the great Life, the Universe and Everything book for our time
- Independent

"Bold ... profound ... provocative and persuasive."
- The Economist

"Science has never had an advocate quite like David Deutsch. He is a computational physicist on a par with his touchstones Alan Turing and Richard Feynman, and also a philosopher in the line of his greatest hero, Karl Popper. His arguments are so clear that to read him is to experience the thrill of the highest level of discourse available on this planet and to understand it."
- Peter Forbes, The Independent

"This is Deutsch at his most ambitious, seeking to understand the implications of our scientific explanations of the world ... I enthusiastically recommend this rich, wide-ranging and elegantly written exposition of the unique insights of one of our most original intellectuals."
- Michael Berry, Times Higher Education Supplement

"David Deutsch...may well go down in history as one of the great scientists of our age."
- Andrew Crumey, The Scotsman
