4.0 out of 5 stars Our place in the cosmos, 9 Dec. 2006
By 
This review is from: The Goldilocks Enigma: Why Is the Universe Just Right for Life? (Hardcover)
Although written with a view to explaining the complexities of physics to the lay reader, this book was hard work. However, this was because of the nature of the material, not because Davies did not make things clear. That said, at the heart of this book is the beautiful idea that human consciousness plays a crucial role in the development of a universe that is "just right" for life. Davies avoids the problem of the origins of the universe (who created the creator?) by proposing a circular system where human consciousness creates the conditions for human consciousness. This is a profound contribution to physics and philosophy and counteracts that feeling of insignificance when you look at the stars.
