Although the title suggests that the topic is philosophy, this book deals with some of the key areas of current theoretical physicsforces and fields, cosmology, Grand Unified Theories, and the future of physics. Morris, the author of The Fate of the Universe and Time's Arrows and himself a physicist, describes the successes and the unresolved dilemmas of present-day physics at a level accessible to lay readers but without flashy sensationalism. He is commendably candid in describing the recent tendency of theoretical physics to drift far from areas open to experimental tests. While willing to state his own opinion on controversial issues he describes other viewpoints fairly. This is an excellent example of scientific popularization; it is highly recommended for academic and public libraries. Jack W. Weigel, Univ. of Michigan Lib., Ann Arbor
