Farewell to Reality: How Modern Physics Has Betrayed the Search for Scientific Truth

From acclaimed technological know-how writer Jim Baggot, a pointed critique of contemporary theoretical physics.

In this wonderful new quantity, Jim Baggott argues that there's no observational or experimental proof for plenty of of the information of contemporary theoretical physics: super-symmetric debris, tremendous strings, the multiverse, the holographic precept, or the anthropic cosmological precept. those theories will not be basically unfaithful; they don't seem to be even technology.

They are fairy-tale physics: fantastical, weird and wonderful and infrequently outrageous, maybe even confidence-trickery. This publication presents a much-needed antidote. trained, finished, and balanced, it deals lay readers the newest principles concerning the nature of actual truth whereas in actual fact distinguishing among truth and myth.

With its attractive photographs of many valuable figures of recent physics, together with Paul Davies, John Barrow, Brian Greene, Stephen Hawking, and Leonard Susskind, it delivers to be crucial interpreting for all readers attracted to what we all know and don't learn about the character of the universe and fact itself.
