內容簡介


以淺顯易懂的語言,帶您領略柏拉圖洞穴外的現實之美

進階版《七堂簡單物理課》!
《紐約時報》暢銷書作者羅維理(Carlo Rovelli)新作!
《金融日報》(Financial Times)好評推薦!

時間和空間真的存在嗎?
它們由什麼組成?
物質從何而來?
現實到底是什麼?

這些都是物理學家羅維理窮極畢生精力,不斷試圖探索的疑問,將顛覆我們對於已知事物的既定印象。他揭開關於宇宙令人費解的一切,要告訴您,現實不如表面看來的那樣!

沒有繁瑣的方程式,也沒有艱深難懂的理論,作者帶您飛過層層障礙,窺見科學與宇宙深刻美麗的內涵。他說明人類對於世界與現實的感知,如何在過去的幾世紀產生改變。他帶領我們踏上長達好幾世紀的奇幻旅程,從亞里斯多德到愛因斯坦、從法拉第到希格斯玻色子、從古典物理學到量子重力的研究,深入說明在前作《七堂簡單物理課》中介紹的概念,使讀者對於近代物理學有更深刻的了解。

當您在羅維理的帶領下,走出柏拉圖的洞穴,將會大開眼界:您觀看世界的方式,從此將不再相同,進而真正領略現實之美!

'The physicist transforming how we see the universe' (Financial Times)

'A joy to read... an intellectual feast' (Michael Brooks New Statesman)

'A hugely engaging book, which leaves the head spinning... Rovelli is a charming, thought-provoking tour guide' (Manjit Kumar Prospect)


Do space and time truly exist? What is reality made of? Can we understand its deep texture?
Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his whole life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. In this mind-expanding book, he shows how our understanding of reality has changed throughout centuries, from Democritus to loop quantum gravity. Taking us on a wondrous journey, he invites us to imagine a whole new world where black holes are waiting to explode, spacetime is made up of grains, and infinity does not exist -- a vast universe still largely undiscovered.
