Will we ever discover a single scientific theory that tells us everything that has happened, and everything that will happen, on every level in the Universe? The quest for the theory of everything - a single key that unlocks all the secrets of the Universe - is no longer a pipe-dream, but the focus of some of our most exciting research about the structure of the cosmos. Bu ...more

I have enjoyed Barrow’s previous works -- I was so enthralled with Barrow and Tipler’s 1988 book The Anthropic Cosmological Principle that I read every word of its 736 pages multiple times. Barrow’s latest book, New Theories of Everything, does not disappoint. In this wide-ranging work, Barrow examines the notion of viewing science as the search for algorithmic compression of observed data. In other words, the best scientific theory is the one that explains the most data precisely in as crisp a ...more

I know that this was published in 1991 but I really didn't think he did that great of a job at going over a lot of the approaches that people are taking in looking for a single Unified Theory. He covered string theory fairly well, but missed a lot of other opportunities to explore other ideas out there. I am going to give him a pass on that because of the publish date, as I know that the last ten years have provided a whirlwind of new ideas in this field. Since that was supposed to be the premis ...more

I am reading it currently. But I have an observation right in the beginning about the author's argument concerning the link between monotheism and unity. Monotheism by nature is proponent of duality. The name itself claims '1' which acknowledges 'existence of 2! And it draws boundary around itself thereby creating an exterior. Hence monotheism is in no way an unifying approach. It is the source of breaking nature into pieces and analysing each fragment separately often resulting in disparerpte c ...more

this book on such a complex topic(especially the portions on alogritihimic compressibility) warrants a second read in order to write a review..

Perfect stuff for Quantum Physics buffs & Arthur Beiser worshipers.
Not the right book to read at 16~17.One more read needed to rate it fairly

Uno de los mejores libros que he leído sobre filosofía de la ciencia / Matemáticas / Física; es adecuado para lectores aficionados y publico en generla a si como para un publico mas educado y expertos en la materia, analiza la historia de la búsqueda de una teoría del todo desde diversos ángulos desde los filósofos de la antigua Grecia y su devoción a las matematicas hasta los físicos del siglo XIX y XX en su trato respecto la relatividad general y la mecánica cuántica. Planteándonos la posibili ...more

Kniha o tom, jak je vůbec teorie všeho myšlenkově podložená. Táže se spíše proč než jak a zavrtává se do problematiky jak z historického, tak právě z filozofického hlediska: jak se náhled na svět vyvíjel, jaké existují názorové školy. A jde docela hluboko. Zaujala.

“If the deep logic of what determines the value of the fine-structure constant also played a significant role in our understanding of all the physical processes in which the fine-structure constant enters, then we would be stymied. Fortunately, we do not need to know everything before we can know something.” 3 likes
