There are some wonderfully bizarre ideas in physics, and it seems a pity to keep them locked up in small boxes, available only to an esoteric coterie of key holders. Brian Ridley's book sets out to survey in simple, nonmathematical terms what physics has to say about the fundamental structure of the universe. He deals with all the basic concepts of modern physics: elementary particles, black holes, gravity, quantum theory, time, mass, relativity and energy; this new edition also includes coverage of more recently emerging ideas, including strings, imaginary time and chaos. Ridley's clear and witty account gives an exciting introduction to the nonspecialist while offering a fresh perspective to scientists themselves.

In this book, Lawrence Sklar demonstrates the interdependence of science and philosophy by examining a number of crucial problems on the nature of space and time—problems that require for their resolution the resources of philosophy and of physics. The overall issues explored are our knowledge of the geometry of the world, the existence of spacetime as an entity over and above the material objects of the world, the relation between temporal order and causal order, and the problem of the direction of time. Without neglecting the most subtle philosophical points or the most advanced contributions of contemporary physics, the author has taken pains to make his explorations intelligible to the reader with no advanced training in physics, mathematics, or philosophy. The arguments are set forth step-by-step, beginning from first principles; and the philosophical discussions are supplemented in detail by nontechnical expositions of crucial features of physical theories.

Translated into English for the first time, this brilliant French bestseller by eminent astrophysicist Laurent Nottale presents the theory of scale relativity, which offers a framework for the unification of quantum theory and relativity through fractal geometry. Updated and revised, with a new afterword by philosopher of science Charles Alunni, The Relativity of All Things is the first of Nottale's popularly accessible works available to English-language readers."To describe the ideas of relativity and quantum mechanics without a single mathematical formula is a veritable feat of magic. . . . With a philosophical audacity that only non-philosophers can possess, Nottale finds that the essence of the principle of relativity is in fact the affirmation of the existence of universal laws applied at every scale. . . . His task is enormous. He proposes that the theory of relativity and that of quantum mechanics, with the radical schism between their findings and methods of thinking, can be reconciled. . . . Nottale's methodological innovation is truly revolutionary. To bring it to fruition, he weds the mathematics of fractals with the theory of relativity. . . . Nottale's approach shows us that we are far from the 'end of science': we are perhaps only at its recommencement." Basarab Nicolescu, Business Digest"Einstein himself explicitly considered that a realistic approach to the quantum problem could go through the introduction of non-differentiability in physics. In 1948, he wrote in a letter to Wolfgang Pauli: 'Maybe someone will find out another possibility, provided he searches with enough perseverance.' Laurent Nottale is very precisely this 'someone'! Read and study this wonderful theory, let yourself be carried away by its beauty, its depth, and its major experimental implications, which are nothing less than fundamental for the future of science, and for philosophy." Charles Alunni, Director, Laboratoire Disciplinaire Pensée des Sciences at the École Normale Supérieure"Since the birth of quantum theory, physicists have been challenged with the development of a unified theory of quantum mechanics and relativity, with no general consensus on the best way forward. To progress further, we have to confront deep questions about space and time, quantum theory, and cosmology, which take theory back into contact with experiment. The theory of scale relativity offers a serious contribution to the debate on unification, offering an intuitive insight into how these theories could be fundamentally linked through space-time geometry." Philip Turner, Director, Centre for Plant Science and Biopolymer Research, Edinburgh Napier University"Laurent Nottale proposes that we look at the concept of fractals to make relativity, extended further yet, the fundamental principle on which to base quantum mechanics. After the relativity of time and space, he has tackled the relativity of scale, putting into question much of what we thought we knew." Pierre Bonnaure, Futuribles"Developments in geometry have often enabled progress in physics, especially when concerning relativity. Non-Euclidean geometry, geometrical systems where the plane is a sphere, made it possible for Einstein to devise his theory of curved space. Today, a new geometry, fractal geometry, allows us to propose a theory of fractal space." Idées clés, by Business Digest

Biocentrism shocked the world with a radical rethinking of the nature of reality. But that was just the beginning. In Beyond Biocentrism, acclaimed biologist Robert Lanza, one of TIME Magazine’s "100 Most Influential People in 2014," and leading astronomer Bob Berman, take the reader on an intellectual thrill-ride as they re-examine everything we thought we knew about life, death, the universe, and the nature of reality itself. The first step is acknowledging that our existing model of reality is looking increasingly creaky in the face of recent scientific discoveries. Science tells us with some precision that the universe is 26.8 percent dark matter, 68.3 percent dark energy, and only 4.9 percent ordinary matter, but must confess that it doesn’t really know what dark matter is and knows even less about dark energy. Science is increasingly pointing toward an infinite universe but has no ability to explain what that really means. Concepts such as time, space, and even causality are increasingly being demonstrated as meaningless. All of science is based on information passing through our consciousness but science hasn’t the foggiest idea what consciousness is, and it can’t explain the linkage between subatomic states and observation by conscious observers. Science describes life as an random occurrence in a dead universe but has no real understanding of how life began or why the universe appears to be exquisitely designed for the emergence of life. The biocentrism theory isn’t a rejection of science. Quite the opposite. Biocentrism challenges us to fully accept the implications of the latest scientific findings in fields ranging from plant biology and cosmology to quantum entanglement and consciousness. By listening to what the science is telling us, it becomes increasingly clear that life and consciousness are fundamental to any true understanding of the universe. This forces a fundamental rethinking of everything we thought we knew about life, death, and our place in the universe.

Solipsism Physical Things and Personal Perceptual Space

Solipsism  Physical Things and Personal Perceptual Space

Solipsism indicates an epistemological position that denies the existence of ‘others’ by asserting that the ‘self’ is the only thing that can be known to exist. For sophist philosophers, the belief that “we can not know anything, and even if we do so, we cannot communicate it” is central to this theory. However, until now there has been little academic scholarship that has tried to provide answers to the pressing issues raised by solipsism. In Solipsist Ontology: Physical Things and Personal Perceptual Space, Ural aims to redefine solipsism by analyzing and elaborating on traditional philosophical problems, such as empiricism and rationalism, as well as discussing problems of language, communication, and meaning. Ural reveals where solipsism has been previously ignored, pseudo-problems have arisen that disguise the sources of the problems with prejudices that concern the philosophical problems in question. Notably, many current, as well as traditional problems of ontology, epistemology, and language are bound up in discourses of solipsism. Ural argues that discarding solipsism as a philosophical discourse hinders new interpretations of traditional philosophical thought. This book offers a fresh perspective to solipsism by defining it in relation to concepts such as ‘physical things,’ ‘personal perceptual space’ and ‘identity.’ Importantly, Ural proposes that an understanding of ‘identity’ is not necessary in order to redefine solipsism. By building a logical system that fashions communication and solipsism as interrelated, it is possible to reject ‘identity’ as a useless concept and thus overcome the classic solipsist dilemma of “we are not able to communicate.” This original piece of research is an important and timely contribution to the field of philosophy that will be of great interest to teachers, researchers, and students.
