About this product
- DescriptionEvery techlogy we rely on today was created by the human mind, seeking to understand the universe around us. Scientific kwledge 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 techlogies causing paradigm shifts in the organization of society. Now, Turok argues, we are on the cusp of ather 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 kwledge 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 ecomy, 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.
