1 out of 5 (1 rating)


In our search for truth, how far have we advanced? This uniquely human quest for good explanations has driven amazing improvements in everything from scientific understanding and technology to politics, moral values and human welfare. But will progress end, either in catastrophe or completion - or will it continue indefinitely?

In this profound and seminal book, David Deutsch explores the furthest reaches of our current understanding, taking in the Infinity Hotel, supernovae and the nature of optimism, to instill in all of us a wonder at what we have achieved - and the fact that this is only the beginning of humanity's infinite possibility.

Review by

This book was a great disappointment. I am unable to comment on the cogency of the explanations contained therein because I found the prose so turgid that I know my eyes would never stay open long enough to reach any explanations. I am afraid this book has completely defeated me.
