Item Description...
Overview
Extraordinary advances in science in the twentieth century profoundly changed the way we perceive the world. New discoveries restored mystery to the universe, revealing a system of symmetry and chaos. In this book, world-renowned astrophysicist Trinh Xuan Thuan reignites the excitement of these discoveries while considering their philosophical and theological implications. He describes the process through which constraining and sterile determinism was challenged, transformed, and swept aside by creative and fertile contingency, which took a prominent place in fields as diverse as cosmology, astrophysics, geology, biology, and genetics. He traces the view of reality as dependent not only on natural laws, but also on a series of historical and contingent events.

A Layman's View of Physics and the Cosmos  Apr 25, 2006
In the mid 1600's Sir Isaac Newton developed a set of basic rules for how the universe worked. The power of Newton's logic, how simple he made the world look held sway for more than two centuries. Only towards the end of the 1800's did experiments begin to point to cracks in the basic Newtonnian theory.

In 1905 however, the world changed. Einstein published his first paper on relativity. Not long after that came quantuum mechanics. The physics of the twentiety century was to greatly change the view of the world. More complex, true, but also more in tune with the experimental findings.

This book is aimed at the layman and explains these fundamental changes in our view of the world. It also points to some of the unanswered questions that remain. Could it be that we are headed to another great change with a new Newton/Einstein in the wings?
