This was probably the first book I read discussing the anthropic principle in astrophysics and physics. Some interesting reading here. That said, I don't buy the Old Universe arguments however even though some Christians see these as essential for "r ...more

Je dois avouer que le premier tiers du livre, qui raconte l’enfance de Rodrigue, est assez traumatisant. Comme le disent les québécois: “Ça fesse dans le dash”. OUCH, OUCH, OUCH... C'est comme si Rodrigue avait passé son enfance dans une maison de fo ...more

“Here is good CS Lewis quote about reading and literature generally:

"Literature enlarges our being by admitting us to experiences not our own. They may be beautiful, terrible, awe-inspiring, exhilarating, pathetic, comic, or merely piquant. Literature give the entree to them all. Those of us who have been true readers all our life seldom realize the enormous extension of our being that we owe to authors. We realize it best when we talk with an unliterary friend. he may be full of goodness and good sense but he inhabits a tiny world. In it, we should be suffocated. My own eyes are not enough for me. Even the eyes of all humanity are not enough. Very gladly would I learn what face things present to a mouse or a bee. (…) In reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself. Like the night sky in a Greek poem, I see with a thousand eyes, but it is still I who see. Here, as in worship, in love, in moral action, and in knowing, I transcend myself: and am never more myself than when I do."
C. S. Lewis An Experiment in Criticism. 1961 pp. 140-141 Cambridge U. Press”
