Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805070923, Hardcover)

An acclaimed science writer takes on humanity's greatest enigmas, from the existence of God to the state of things before the Big Bang.

Science has stretched its bounds in recent years, and bestsellers on topics such as string theory prove that readers are fascinated by these new perceptions of the world and universe around us. Bringing a thought-provoking perspective to bear on state-of-the-art science, Richard Morris now tackles age-old conundrums in a fresh way.

A fascinating, entertaining investigation of our biggest metaphysical puzzles, The Big Questions explores issues such as: What is time? What is consciousness? And what is truth, really? Does the future already exist? Where does God fit into this? Surveying the latest scientific theories, Morris makes quantum mechanics, cosmology, genetics, and cognitive research accessible and applicable to everyone. Engaging and provocative,The Big Questions is science at its most compelling.
