On Being : A Scientist's Exploration of the Great Questions of Existence Paperback

Description

In this scientific 'Credo', Peter Atkins considers the universal questions of origins, endings, birth, and death to which religions have claimed answers.

With his usual economy, wit, and elegance, unswerving before awkward realities, Atkins presents what science has to say.

While acknowledging the comfort some find in belief, he declares his own faith in science's capacity to reveal the deepest truths.
