The Universe That Discovered Itself
by John D. Barrow

Paperback in good cond

Are there really laws of nature out there waiting to be discovered? Or are they simply an illusion? This revised edition of "The World Within the World", is John Barrow's extraordinary study of how we view the universe. Covering the magical notions of primitive cultures to the latest ideas about chaos, black holes, inflation, and superstrings, the book traces the development of our concept of what the laws of nature are and how we come to know them. Entertaining and inspiring, it is a journey to the edge of space and time.


"Wonderfully wide-ranging....Barrow explores not only a wide gamut of topics in the zone between physics and astronomy, but he wrestles with their philosophical contexts as well."--Nature Please click here to ask a question
