Synopsis

Using comic-book style illustration combined with accessible but authoritative text, the Introducing Graphic Guide series is a uniquely brilliant way to get your head around some of humankind's most thrilling ideas.



Infinity is a profoundly counter-intuitive and brain-twisting subject that has inspired some great thinkers - and provoked and shocked others. Introducing Infinity: A Graphic Guide is a brilliant graphic tour of infinity features a cast of characters ranging from Archimedes and Pythagoras to al-Khwarizmi, Fibonacci, Galileo, Newton, Leibniz, Cantor, Venn, Godel and Mandelbrot, and shows how infinity has challenged the finest minds of science and mathematics.



Introducing Consciousness presents the history of the philosophical relation between mind and matter, and covers the scientific attempts to explain consciousness in terms of neural mechanisms, cerebral computation and quantum mechanics. It also introduces readers to zombies, ghosts in machines and Schrodinger's cat.



Stephen Hawking is the world-famous physicist; to the public he is a tragic figure - a brilliant scientist and author of the 9 million-copy-selling 'A Brief History of Time', and yet confined to a wheelchair and almost completely paralysed. Introducing Stephen Hawking: A Graphic Guide guide explores his life, and the evolution of his work from his days as a student.
