The Dialogues: Conversations about the Nature of the Universe
Mar 16, 2019
An innovative and creative way to talk about physics! Here we get to listen in on people having chats in museums and cafes and trains about electromagnetism, relativity, cosmology, and more. Conversations, with their give-and-take nature, are often more accessible than a lecture or a monologue. They also give participants the chance to ask questions, and we get drawn in with our own curiosity about the answers - and in many cases, the answer is "we don't yet know." Overall, this book presents a fun and (unusually) humble view of physics. Conversations that don't turn into arguments (even when God gets mentioned) are refreshing, and I enjoyed seeing so many examples of friendly, open discussion, with no winners or losers, even when the participants disagreed. What a great model for all of us to follow in our own conversations!
