Description - God and the New Physics by P. C. W. Davies

In God and the New Physics, Paul Davies explains how science has come of age, and can now offer a surer path to divinity than religion. Science is now on the verge of answering our most profound questions about the nature of existence. Here Paul Davies explains how the far-reaching discoveries of recent physics are revolutionizing our world and, in particular, throwing light on many of the questions formerly posed by religion, such as: * Why is there a universe?* Where did we come from?* What is life?* How is the world organized? Examining subjects from the creation to the soul, free will to time, black holes to miracles, he travels through science and religion to show us that there is more to the world than meets the eye. 'Excellent ...explains with fluent simplicity some of the profoundest questions of cosmology' Daily Telegraph 'One of the finest science writers of this generation' Independent 'Paul Davies is our best guide to this strange new world' Observer 'A list of topics to which he refers would constitute an outline for a dictionary of contemporary scientific excitement. His style is clear, interesting, chatty' The Times Higher Education Supplement Paul Davies is Director of the BEYOND Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science, and co-Director of the Cosmology Initiative, both at Arizona State University. An internationally-acclaimed physicist, writer and broadcaster, Davies is the author of some twenty award-winning books, including The Eerie Silence: Searching for Ourselves in the Universe, The Goldilocks Enigma: Why is the Universe Just Right for Life? and The Mind of God: Science and the Search for Ultimate Meaning.
