9780099223917: Dreams Of A Final Theory: The Search for The Fundamental Laws of Nature: Search for the Ultimate Laws of Nature

An understanding of nature's final laws may be within our grasp - a way of explaining forces and symmetries and articles that does not require further explanation. 'This starting point, to which all explanations can be traced, is what I mean by a final theory', says Steven Weinberg in this extraordinary book. In it he discusses beauty, the weakness of philosophy, the best ideas in physics and the honour of accepting a world without god.

Review:

"Wienberg has reached the pinnacle of scientific succes - the Nobel Prize - he writes clearly and with confidence, imbuing the reader with an irresistible sense that one is in the hands of a master physicist at play" ( Sunday Times)

"Highly literate, comprehensive, challenging, a survey of an exciting and extraordinary field of enquiry by one of its leading figures" ( Financial Times)

"A truly important book, one which tries to change our minds... A magnificently honest piece of work" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"This is a brilliant book" ( Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

A fascinating and controversial book about the minutiae that make up the universe and the possibility of a theory that might unite them all, by the author of a prize-winning account of the Big Bang, The First Three Minutes.
