Beschreibung

In this thought-provoking book Küppers, an internationally renowned physicist, philosopher and theoretical biologist, addresses a number of science's deepest questions: Can physics advance to the origin of all things and explain the unique phenomena of life, time and history? Are there unsolvable enigmas of the world? How did life originate? Is language a general phenomenon of Nature? What is time? Is it possible to express the history of the world in formulae? Where is science leading us? These and other provocative questions essential for a deeper understanding of the world are treated here in a refreshing and stimulating manner.



Bernd-Olaf Küppers, born in 1944, is an internationally renowned physicist and philosopher of science. For many years he was engaged in research at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry (Göttingen). Thereafter, he was professor of natural philosophy at the university of Jena. His main research field is the origin and evolution of genetic information. He is author and editor of numerous books, including the monographs 'Molecular Theory of Evolution' and 'Information and the Origin of Life'. He has been recognized with, among other things, memberships of the German National Academy of Sciences and the Academia Europaea (London).
