God and the New Physics

God and the New Physics

Paul Davies is interested in all the questions raised 3,000 years ago by the Pentateuch; and in the increasingly intractable questions of how the universe began, how life began and how we came to be.

In God and the New Physics, Davies picks his way patiently through all the areas of argument – the definition of life’s complexity; the insubstantial abstractions of mind and soul; the idea of self; the enduring argument about whether there really is such a thing as free will; the problem of defining words like “miracle”; the mystery of time; the question of whether this universe is an accident or part of a bigger plan; and the riddle of why all the values and constants of physical forces seem so exquisitely tuned to produce and sustain life (but only, as far as we know, once).
