Description
Many scientists attest to the scope and power of scientific thinking, claiming that it will ultimately provide a complete understanding of everything. But Russell Stannard, himself an eminent high-energy physicist, strongly disagrees with this. Indeed, Stannard argues that eventually—perhaps in a few decades, perhaps in a few centuries—fundamental science will reach the limit of what it can explain. To highlight the boundaries of scientific understanding, Stannard takes readers on an engaging tour of some of the deepest questions facing science today—questions to do with consciousness, free will, the existence of extraterrestrial life, and the nature of space, time, and matter.

"[The author's] 'end of science' approach is a hook on which to hang a survey of the perplexing theories floating around science today. His presentation is clear enough for even science-savvy high school students—who may be challenged to try to solve Stannard's intractable problems."—Publisher's Weekly
