It is generally thought that science, by its very nature, must always progress. But this is not necessarily so. One day, fundamental science may come to an end. Limitations as to what the human brain can comprehend, together with practical considerations to do with the need for ever more elaborate and expensive equipment, are likely to ensure that our knowledge will remain for ever incomplete.
In this book, the author brings the general reader up to date with the deepest questions facing us today - questions to do with consciousness, free will, the nature of space, time, and matter, the existence of extraterrestrial life, and why there should be a world at all.
Lucid and provocative, it is a very polite corrective to both superstitions of the layman and the triumphalism of the experts. New Statesman A lucid tour. Simon Mitton, THES Stannard takes readers on a tour of some of the deepest questions facing science. The Independent
