Über diesen Titel


Since the publication of Darwin's "Origin of Species" in 1859, many have found science and belief in God irreconcilable. The conflict has been heightened by the subsequent dramatic advances in physics, biology and the new fields of chaos and complexity. Some scientists insist that belief in God can sit comfortably alongside scientific knowledge; for others the idea is anathema. But this is not a question confined to scientists, philosophers and intellectuals. From the author of "Stephen Hawking: A Quest for a Theory of Everything", this book examines the impact of scientific discoveries and the question of whether we can ever "find" God - or a scientific formula that will erase once and for all the notion of God.

From the Back Cover:

Since the publication of Darwin's Origin of Species in 1859, many have found science and belief in God irreconcilable. Now, in the final decade of the twentieth century, stunning advances in physics, biology, and the new fields of chaos and complexity have brought the conflict to a crucial stage. More and more, scientists have begun to look for a single fundamental law or truth that underlies the beginning of the universe and its continued existence. But can we truly find either God or a scientific theory that will erase once and for all the notion of God? This strikingly original book expertly yet clearly encapsulates the various cosmological arguments from science, religion, and philosophy for the nonspecialist. Called "a brilliant intermediary between the thinking of the physicist and the thinking of ordinary people" by a German radio commentator, Kitty Ferguson provides a tour de force review of the modern search for fundamental truth, writing in simple, readable prose and using relevant analogies. The result is a provocative, sometimes mind-bending challenge to reconsider the way we think about ourselves, our origin, and our destiny. Moving beyond Stephen Hawking's quest (in A Brief History of Time) "to know the mind of God", Ferguson takes us one step nearer the answer to science's ultimate question: What is it that breathes fire into the equations and makes a universe for them to describe?
