A game-changing exploration of how we can solve seemingly unsolvable problems and achieve progress that is limitless by David Deutsch, a leading physicist, and an amazing writer.
Packed with humor, rich examples and lots of insight, The Beginning of Infinity explains the conditions under which progress can happen, why scientists have made so many errors in the past, what the most important unsolved problems are, and what it will take to keep progressing into the future.
Deutsch probed all areas of knowledge- among them philosophy, science, mathematics, politics, art, and morals- showing how we form new theories and drop bad ones by improving explanations. This book is strongly recommended for anyone who is curious about scientific principles or human nature in general!
