The Beginning of Infinity: Explanations that Transform The World (Allen Lane Science)
The Beginning of Infinity: Explanations that Transform The World (Allen Lane Science)
by David Deutsch
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Deutsch's explanation transforms our world!, 13 Oct. 2011
I cannot stress the importance of this book enough. This book is about the power and potential of explanations and therefore also of our potential as a species, as the people who are able to create these explanations. Deutsh's book is an incredibly lucid and powerful explanation in itself and I will even go as far as to conclude that with this book Deutsch has become the most important philosopher of our time!
Do yourself a favor and read this book! Deutsch's book is not technical and understandable by anyone with a decent brain. That includes you, otherwise you would not be reading this review. The book's arguments are as rational as they are optimistic (in every sense of the word, including the definition in the book itself).
This is the kind of thinking that empowers us both as individuals and as a species. MARVELLOUS!
