This thought-provoking book addresses a number of science’s deepest questions: Can the exact sciences retrace the origin of all things and explain the unique phenomena of time, life and history? Are there unsolvable enigmas of the world? How did life originate? Is language a general phenomenon of Nature? What is time? Can history be condensed into formulae? Where is science going? These and other questions essential for a deeper understanding of the world are treated here in a refreshing and stimulating manner.
