Brian reminded me that we must never stop asking “why”, that asking “why” is what makes us human. He acknowledges the complexity of problematic topics and painstakingly walks the reader through the material every time. When it does, the surface becomes increasingly concave, moved outward by what why now call centripetal or centrifugal force. Greene is an insider, to different degrees, in the enterprises of mathematics, physics and string theory.

Oh, actually the underlying theme to the book is how do we understand the concepts of space and time, or spacetime, which is one of the problems of understanding why the water in the bucket does what it does when it is spun around.

Dep this made Feynman an incredibly effective educator, he was never able to write a book for want of literary chops. It turns out, however, that the items in question are not so simple. His use of analogy to elucidate arcane concepts is spot on even when especially when the comparison seems initially off the wall. Moreover, being particle dep an area of such intense and frantic development, there are a couple of area where the book looks a bit dated for example, even if SUSY is not officially dead, the results coming out of the LHC are such that there is tejodo doubt over the real prospects of SUSY and consequently of Super String Theories – although it is completely premature to claim ggreene they are dead.

That said, I think it was unecessary to use popular culture the way he did. My only criticism is that Greene can’t figure out who his audience is: I just made a slight at pop-science and that is hypocritical of me, it’s really the only type of science I can understand and this book basically falls into that category, it’s a watered down version of real science so humanities idiots like me can understand concepts that they would stare open mouthed at if they had to read the actual articles about.

As for 1most pop sci books on physics focus on trying to convey one or more specific theories quantum theory, special relativity, string theory, etc and may discuss space or time in the context of one of these theories but don’t make connections between them. Greene uses lots of pop cosmoss referenced examples to illustr I finally finished Brian Greene’s Fabric of the Cosmos and I am more confused than ever about string theory, M-theory and the nature of spacetime.

His book is very readable and he has a great gift of explaining complex subjects with an amazing clarity. This feeling, this sensation that time is flowing, doesn’t require previous moments—previous frames—to be “sequentially illuminated.

He says that if you watch a film of an egg falling and braking that you could reverse the film and there is nothing in the laws of physics to decide which direction the film travelled in that must be the right direction. This is a one way reaction. Anyway, back to Parmenides, I don’t buy the idea that his role was only as foil, or goad to the materialists to make their theories more logically consistent.

Recognising that he had no way of testing this medium by experiment, Newton took this is an immutable absolute and left it at that. And I wanted to enjoy this book, I really did. I realized that most of the ways books in the new age section use science terms to validate their ideas and how they claim to be drawing on cutting edge research is bullshit, that they are just picking terms out and using them in ways to sell books on hokum.

My problem is exacerbated by the fact that it seems that every time there is a problem in Physics we are having trouble solving we just make up something invisible to solve it.

That said, don’t expect a book without mathematics to convey a full picture of our current understanding of physics. I know these details are really important to doing science, but without any reason to care about wanting to know about science this is all just monumental busy work.


Dec 26, Mike rated it really liked it. In fact, I have rbian problems with modern physics and believe that the only way I could really understand it more would be to go back and finish off a degree in this stuff. I’m starting to wish I never listed this here because if I hadn’t I tejiro give up without feeling so bad or anyone knowing.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Greene’s salient attribute is clarity: AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally.

Unfortunately, though, I have a feeling this enlightenment is but a moon’s dim reflective glow, gone as soon as the sun rises. It cannot, of course, be dispensed with completely — metaphors are an extraordinarily powerful descriptive cismos, especially in a field that can only properly be explained and understood using specialist mathematics — but for the most part Greene simply gives an overview of each field in historical context, and explains WHY it is important, what it explains and why it works.

Of course, as Greene points out, much of what physics proposes is theory that has not been experimentally verified. Sign In Register Help Cart. I’ll just say, I came out of the book feeling and sounding smarter. Customers who bought this item also bought.

In his characteristically witty and accessible prose, Greene explores the nature of space – from Newton’s static realm, through Einstein’s fusion of space As in Stephen Hawking’s The Grand Design, Greene completely dispenses with calculations but, unlike Hawking, he also tries to keep the use of metaphor to a minimum. Our Day return guarantee still applies. I can only recommend it to anybody who does not have a formal degree in science and wants to learn more about cosmology but is a bit frustrated about the lack of depth popular accounts of this topic typically provide.

Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality Can we travel to the past? Greene will outright warn you to skip ahead if its getting too dense, which is nice. I did not find all the included graphics helpful, but a few were enormously helpful. View all 4 comments.
