In other words: prepare to be shaken to your very core! And Why? You may be one of the many people believing that physics is not about everybody and that only those who understand equations should dabble with it. Be warned, though: If you have come here without at least some average understanding of physics, then your whole worldview is about to be radically altered.
Bear in mind that very few things in this book are scientific speculations and, obviously, they all come with an appropriate footnote. Most of it is cutting-edge science. Ever since , he has been a professor at Columbia University.
As you can see from the full playlist, Greene discusses a few more things: You may know Sir Isaac Newton as the guy who robbed God of his job when he rendered all motion comprehensible and predictable through his laws of motion.
Among the many other, he also initiated the great debate on the nature of space and time. Both parties traded blows, but then, in Newton delivered the most damaging one: the water bucket argument. The argument is relatively simple: take a bucket filled with water and hung it by a cord.
Shouldn't it be the job of schools to get kids to care and wanting to learn rather than forcing meaningless facts onto them? This rantish aside about the misguided importance pedological approach?
It's too late now, and I'm too dumb in too many areas of knowledge but I should have been a theoretical physicist. That is what I realized reading this book. I wish someone had told me about the weird shit these people try to figure out, explained who Parmenides was and the basic gist of his Poem was, and then told me I could work on these problems for the rest of my life if I started to pay attention in math class and gave a shit about my science classes, that there was cool stuff I'd get to later on.
Parmenides is never mentioned in this book, but at almost every step through the book he kept popping into my mind. He's my reoccurring fascination.
His idea of the everything just being One at first glance is so silly. I remember the first time reading Zeno's Paradoxes he was Parmenides student and thinking they were just silly games with words, obviously something moves faster than something else and can over come it. Obviously an arrow shot at a target eventually hits it.
But sometime soon after my immediate annoyance at these kinds of meaningless games something clicked in me and I started to try to think through what Parmenides could mean by the whole universe being an unchanging, undivisible, timeless thing.
A point, if you would.
On one level Parmenides can be thought of as the logical foil to the pre-Socratic materialists, the voice that says your theory is nice but what about x? I don't download into the idea that was Parmenides only goal though. Unfortunately it's pretty much impossible to know exactly what Parmenides thought, because of thanks to those motherfucking Christians and Moslems you know for their multiple burnings of the Library of Alexandria and Christians for their wanton destruction of 'heretical' literature we have only a scant few fragments left from Parmenides work, and most of it is second hand from the post-Socratic arch-materialist Aristotle materialist meaning something sort of different in the Ancient Greek sense than one would think of a materialist today.
Are you bored yet? Anyway, back to Parmenides, I don't download the idea that his role was only as foil, or goad to the materialists to make their theories more logically consistent. Because of Plato.
There is simply no better introduction to the strange wonders of general relativity and quantum mechanics, the fields of knowledge essential for any real understanding of space and time. Read [your friends] the passages of this book that boggle your mind. You may find yourself reading them every single paragraph.
Introduces the reader to the mind-boggling landscape of cutting-edge theoretical physics, where mathematics rules supreme.
The Elegant Universe was a Pulitzer Prize finalist. The Fabric of the Cosmos deserves to win it. A pleasure to read. Brian Greene received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University and his doctorate from Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He joined the physics faculty at Cornell University in , was appointed to a full professorship in , and in joined Columbia University where he is professor of physics and mathematics.
