The grand design : [new answers to the ultimate questions of life]

Along with Caltech physicist Mlodinow (The Drunkard's Walk), University of Cambridge cosmologist Hawking (A Brief History of Time) deftly mixes cutting-edge physics to answer three key questions-- Why is there something rather than nothing? Why do we exist? Why this particular set of laws and not some other?-- and explains that scientists are approaching what is called "M-theory, " a collection of overlapping theories (including string theory) that fill in many (but not all) the blank spots in quantum physics. This collection is known as the "Grand Unified Field Theories."

  • "Nel "Grande disegno" il celebre astrofisico si cimenta con la sfida scientifica per eccellenza, affrontando la questione che da sempre divide filosofi, scienziati e teologi: l'origine del cosmo e della vita stessa. Insieme al fisico Léonard Mlodinow, Hawking ripercorre le più recenti scoperte della fisica spiegando come il cosmo, in base alla teoria quantistica, non abbia una sola esistenza, e come tutte le possibili storie dell'universo esistano simultaneamente. Approdiamo così alla teoria del "multiverso", la coesistenza del nostro universo accanto a una moltitudine di universi apparsi spontaneamente dal nulla, ciascuno con proprie leggi di natura. Nel corso della storia della scienza si è scoperta una serie di teorie o modelli sempre migliori, da Platone alla teoria classica di Newton, fino alle moderne teorie quantistiche. È naturale chiedersi se si arriverà a una teoria dell'universo che non possa essere ulteriormente migliorata. Oggi disponiamo di una candidata alla teoria ultima del tutto: la "teoria M". Se confermata, sarà la teoria unitaria di cui Einstein era alla ricerca, e il trionfo della ragione umana. Quanto a un presunto creatore del Grande disegno, la scienza dimostra che l'universo può crearsi dal nulla sulla base delle leggi della fisica. Un saggio scientifico che spiega con linguaggio accessibile e attraverso eleganti illustrazioni come l'astrofisica sia ormai vicina a comprendere i segreti più nascosti della materia."@it
  • "Die letzten dreißig Jahre seines wissenschaftlichen Lebens verwandte Albert Einstein auf die Suche nach der Weltformel, die alle elementaren Naturkräfte in einer einzigen schlüssigen Theorie erklärt. Aber die Zeit war nicht reif für eine solche Entdeckung. Auch nicht, als Stephen Hawking 1988 Eine kurze Geschichte der Zeit veröffentlichte. Sein Welt-Bestseller hat jedoch die Suche nach der einen Theorie von allem populär gemacht wie kein anderes Buch. Jetzt überrascht uns Hawking mit der Nachricht, dass wir womöglich kurz davorstehen. In Der große Entwurf schlägt das Jahrhundert-Genie einen ungewöhnlichen Weg vor, wie sich die widerstreitenden Theorien über Relativität und Quantenphysik zusammenfügen lassen. Für Hawking wäre dann bewiesen, was er heute nur vermuten kann: dass sich das Universum selbst erschaffen hat. Im Lichte von 40 Jahren eigener Forschung und mit Blick auf die bahnbrechenden astronomischen Entdeckungen und theoretischen Durchbrüche der letzten Jahre präsentiert Der große Entwurf eine aufregend neue und provokative Theorie über den Ursprung und die Entwicklung des Universums. In seiner klaren, eleganten und bilderreichen Sprache unternimmt es Hawking gemeinsam mit Leonard Mlodinow, uns Antworten zu geben auf die ersten und letzten Fragen unserer Existenz."

  • "#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER When and how did the universe begin' Why are we here' What is the nature of reality' Is the apparent "grand design" of our universe evidence of a benevolent creator who set things in motion'or does science offer another explanation' In this startling and lavishly illustrated book, Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow present the most recent scientific thinking about these and other abiding mysteries of the universe, in nontechnical language marked by brilliance and simplicity. According to quantum theory, the cosmos does not have just a single existence or history. The authors explain that we ourselves are the product of quantum fluctuations in the early universe, and show how quantum theory predicts the "multiverse"'the idea that ours is just one of many universes that appeared spontaneously out of nothing, each with different laws of nature. They conclude with a riveting assessment of M-theory, an explanation of the laws governing our universe that is currently the only viable candidate for a "theory of everything": the unified theory that Einstein was looking for, which, if confirmed, would represent the ultimate triumph of human reason."@en
