Who’s Afraid of Schrödinger’s Cat?

At the end of the nineteenth century, the British physicist Lord Kelvin advised his best students to avoid a career in physics. “All the interesting work has been done there”, he told them.

He was wrong. The scientific revolution of the twentieth century has offered a whole new way of looking at ourselves; our theories of mind and structures; global, political and economic trends; the meaning of being human, and our place in the scheme of things. Who’s Afraid of Schr??dinger’s Cat? is the essential guide to understanding our universe and the seemingly irreconcilable and contradictory theorems that are at the heart of the new science and the new thinking.

* Ideal, easily accessible companion for all levels of scientific knowledge
* Introductory essays provide an overview of the new sciences and explain developments in key areas of thought
* Explores more than 200 scientific terms and theories in A-Z format
