About This Item

San Francisco: Harper & Row, 1981. Trade Paperback. Very Good+. Interior pristine. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Rubbing and light reading wear to covers. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 262 pages.

This book entertainingly traces the history of physics from the observations of the early Greeks through the discoveries of Galileo and Newton to the dazzling theories of such scientists as Planck, Einstein, Bohr, and Bohm. This humanized view of science opens up the mind-stretching visions of how quantum mechanics, God, human thought, and will are related, and provides profound implications for our understanding of the nature of reality and our relationship to the cosmos.
