內容簡介

發現時間的形狀:相對論如何影響我們存在的宇宙
科普作家Brian Clegg以通俗科學視角,審視生命與宇宙的源由

將最偉大的科學理論相互交織,帶領讀者一同經歷一場驚險的科學之旅,內容橫跨空無的宇宙到人類思維。由知名暢銷科普作家Brian Clegg以科學理論一步一步建構人類所存在的現實,從空間、時間、個體、運動、基本作用力、生命和巨大的轉變,發現生命與相對論如何鍛造自然世界。從宗教到哲學,人類早已透過傳統的理論與信念解釋我們所存在的世界,但直到科學的出現,相對論破除了許多我們曾深信的理念,僅留下永恆不變的定義,例如絕對零度、虛無理論及光等,透過相對論深入理解人類存在的真實意義。這本意義非凡的作品,可說是現代版《人之上升Ascent of Man》,結合現代科學,述說最動人的人類起源與宇宙由來。

Weaving together the great ideas of science, in this, his magnum opus, Brian Clegg builds up reality piece by piece, from space, to time, to matter, movement, the fundamental forces, life, and the massive transformation that life itself has wrought on the natural world. He reveals that underlying it all is not, as we might believe, a system of immovable absolutes, but the ever-shifting, amorphous world of relativity.

From religion to philosophy, humanity has traditionally sought out absolutes to explain the world around us, but as science has developed, relativity has swept away many of these certainties, leaving only a handful of unchangeable essentials – such as absolute zero, nothingness, light – leading to better science and a new understanding of the essence of being human.

This is an Ascent of Man for the 21st century, the gripping story of modern science that will fill you with wonder and give you a new insight into our place in the universe.
