Seeking Ultimates: An Intuitive Guide to Physics (Hardback)

Not available.


This text takes the reader on a journey which explores the limits of scientific knowledge, some of the gaps, and some of the discoveries yet to be made. The author, Peter Landsberg, discusses complex ideas to question the validity of the models used to define physical reality. He uses examples from everyday life to ask: what is energy, and why is the periodic table arranged in such a way? He examines theories of entropy, chaos, quantum theory and cosmology for completeness. Readers are then challenged to re-assess their beliefs in unarguable truths presented by mathematical theorems and the more philosophical issues of theology and happiness. Using careful reference to historical figures such as Mendeleev and Newton, thought-provoking illustrations, backed up by lucid narratives, this text aims to encourage the reader to reconsider scientific beliefs in a new light.
