You can face Pagel’s “Cosmic Code” directly with Carl Sagan’s “Cosmos” as a way of confronting the two sides of the most widely known fields of physics being investigated: No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks!

Pagel is able to discuss complex features of quantum mechanics through a simple approach and, even though the book is already somewhat old, the passion and the relevance of the chosen topics to approach render this book as an almost timeless effort. Co-creating at Its Best. Find it on Scholar.

Membacanya seolah-oleh berada dalam bilik kuliah! I have read a lot of physics books in the meantime but I finally got around to the book he recommended. The Rise of the Sciences of Complexity.

However, it requires some prior knowledge of physics, at least at high-school level, if you aspire to get a full grasp of what the author wanted to convey. As I continued to fall in the dark void, embraced by the vault of the heavens, I sang to the beauty of the stars and made my peace with the darkness.


There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Modern Physics and Problems of Knowledge. He has a serious interest in and a talent for philosophy, as well as an appealing knack for making the complex and abstruse seem intelligible without doing violence to its essentials.

Essays on Atomic Physics and Human Knowledge. Written in the mids and stands as a solid popular science book on 20th-century physics. He also published with David Atkatz a visionary paper entitled Origin of the Universe as a quantum tunneling event [3] that prefigured later work done in the field.

Inshe married Heinz R. However, they are in a uniquely privileged position cksmic comment on scientific process. It is really a wonderful book, it is worth ten stars. The cosmologist David Schramm described Pagels’ first book The Cosmic Code as “a beautiful account of modern physics”. Prayer – The Art of Believing.

Heinz Pagels – Wikipedia

Pagels presents his own position, starting from a postulational affirmation of the “God that plays dice” whom Einstein rejected, but he is careful to present other points of view in a manner calculated to give the reader broader insights and some sense of choice.

It is both cheering and helpful to find a scientist of Pagels’ professional stature who so ably combines expository skill and honest philosophical concern. Great Experiments in Physics: No trivia or quizzes yet. Quotes from The Cosmic Code: The two-part treatment outlines the history of quantum physics and addresses complex subjects such as Bell’s theorem and elementary particle physics, drawing upon the work of Bohr, Gell-Mann, and others.

Thirty Years that Shook Physics: The second section, ‘The Voyage into Matter’, goes forward through the abstract but dramatic developments of the last 30 years. Without cookies your experience may not be seamless. Pagels’ work is probably one of the best layperson cofe to both understanding and “interpreting” Quantum Mechanics.
