This listing:

ARE ANGELS OKAY?, Paul Callaghan & Bill Manhire (2006)


Softback in good condition.

ABOUT THIS BOOK: Are Angels OK?? asked Bill the poet.
?Angels are just fine,? said Paul the physicist.

And thus began an extraordinary blind date between New Zealand writers and physicists.

In this remarkable book, ten leading New Zealand writers (with some help from leading New Zealand scientists) wing their way through:

The sandpile phenomenon
The curvature of space time
Wave particle duality
The untimely death of Schrodinger?s cat
Heisenberg?s Uncertainty Principle
Dark energy
The arrow of time
The Death of the Sun
and The End of the Universe

This is a provocative and fascinating reader for science and non-science buffs alike. Since Einstein?s time the world of physics has become a strange, fantastic and sometimes disturbing place ? potentially a rich domain for philosophers and artists - the results of these science/literary and artistic collaboration prove this point.
