Summary
World-renowned physicist Neil Turok delivers this year's Massey Lectures - a visionary look at the way the human mind can shape the future. A groundbreaking book about the future of science - and the directions in which it will take us and our world.The Universe Within is that rare thing, a genuinely exciting and exhilarating book. It is a mixture of polemic, celebrating science and reason with the eloquence and power of Sagan and Bronowski, and a beautifully written exploration of some of the great fundamental questions at the frontier of scientific knowledge. If you want to experience the excitement of modern science and understand why scientists devote their professional lives to the exploration of the unknown, then read this book.' —Brian Cox, author of The Quantum UniverseEvery technology we rely on today was created by the human mind, seeking to understand the universe around us. Scientific knowledge is our most precious possession, and our future will be shaped by the breakthroughs to come.In this personal, visionary, and fascinating work, Neil Turok, one of the world's leading theoretical physicists, explores the transformative scientific discoveries of the past three centuries- from classical mechanics, to the nature of light, to the bizarre world of the quantum, and the evolution of the cosmos. Each new discovery has, over time, yielded new technologies causing paradigm shifts in the organization of society.Now, Turok argues, we are on the cusp of another major transformation: the coming quantum revolution that will supplant our current, dissatisfying digital age. Facing this brave new world, Turok calls for creatively re-inventing the way advanced knowledge is developed and shared, and opening access to the vast, untapped pools of intellectual talent in the developing world. Scientific research, training, and outreach are vital to our future economy, as well as powerful forces for peaceful global progress.Elegantly written, deeply provocative, and highly inspirational, The Universe Within is, above all, about the future-of science, of society, of ourselves
