內容簡介

愛因斯坦後當代最傑出的物理學家史蒂芬‧霍金
繼暢銷書《時間簡史:從大爆炸到黑洞》後,推出最具代表性的人類與宇宙大哉問


影響人類進程的科學家史蒂芬‧霍金以其開創性的物理學、宇宙學研究及調皮風趣的幽默感而聞名。他帶領超過百萬讀者學習關於宇宙起源和黑洞的本質,甚至因為漸凍人疾病纏身而激勵更多人勇敢活著,儘管他只能透過臉部肌肉與人溝通,但仍不停歇推進他的研究領域,在社會和人道主義等議題擔任發聲者。

霍金不只揭開了宇宙最偉大的謎團,甚至相信科學的力量才能真正解決地球未來即將面臨的危機。如今我們的地球正面臨許多巨大的挑戰,包括氣候變遷、核戰威脅及人工智慧的發展趨勢,他將研究的重點轉向人類最急迫的問題。

未來人類仍會存活嗎?我們應該在宇宙中尋找其他殖民地嗎?上帝是否存在?這些只是這本著作中所探討的幾個疑問,書中內容擷取各界專業人士所提出的疑問,透過演講、採訪、隨筆筆記及問答等形式解答,前言邀請到曾在《愛的萬物論》中扮演霍金的奧斯卡最佳男主角艾迪‧瑞德曼撰寫,引言邀請諾貝爾得主基普‧索恩,而後記則由霍金的女兒露西完成,本書將是霍金留給世人最具啟發性的偉大作品。

The world-famous cosmologist and #1 bestselling author of A Brief History of Time leaves us with his final thoughts on the universe's biggest questions in this brilliant and page-turning posthumous work.

Why are we here? Will we survive? Will technology save us? How can we thrive?

Stephen Hawking was recognized as one of the greatest minds of our time and a figure of inspiration after defying his ALS diagnosis at age twenty-one. He is known for both his breakthroughs in theoretical physics as well as his ability to make complex concepts accessible for all, and was beloved for his mischievous sense of humor. At the time of his death, Hawking was working on a final project: a book compiling his answers to the "big" questions that he was so often posed--questions that ranged beyond his academic field. Within these pages, he provides his personal views on our biggest challenges as a human race, and where we, as a planet, are heading next. Each section will be introduced by a leading thinker offering his or her own insight into Professor Hawking's contribution to our understanding. The book will also feature a foreword from Academy Award winning actor Eddie Redmayne, who portrayed Hawking in the film The Theory of Everything, and an afterword by Hawking's daughter, Lucy Hawking, as well as personal photographs and additional archival material.
