Sabine Hossenfelder

Do we have free will? Is the universe compatible with God? Do we live in a computer simulation? Does the universe think?

Physicists are great at complicated research but are less good at telling us why it matters. In this entertaining and groundbreaking book, theoretical physicist Sabine Hossenfelder explains why we should care. Drawing on the latest research in quantum mechanics, black holes, string theory, and particle physics, Existential Physics explains what modern physics can tell us about the big questions.

Filled with counterintuitive insights and including interviews with other leading scientists, this clear yet profound book will reshape your understanding of science and the limits of what we can know.
