Description

Short Review

“The Beginning of Infinity: Explanations That Transform the World”  is a popular book by physicist David Deutsch from Oxford University.  This book digs deep in to the root behind scientific progress — perpetually refined theories tested and rejected via experimentation. As David Deutsch says — only the laws of physics are the limit of what we can achieve.

In this groundbreaking book, award-winning physicist David Deutsch argues that explanations have a fundamental place in the universe — and that improving them is the basic regulating principle of all successful human endeavor. Taking us on a journey through every fundamental field of science, as well as the history of civilization, art, moral values, and the theory of political institutions, Deutsch tracks how we form new explanations and drop bad ones, explaining the conditions under which progress — which he argues is potentially boundless — can and cannot happen. Hugely ambitious and highly original, The Beginning of Infinity explores and establishes deep connections between the laws of nature, the human condition, knowledge, and the possibility for progress.
