Simple Nature( Visual )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Simple Nature, world famous physicist Dr. Leonard Susskind introduces The Anthropic Principle in an entertaining, accessible and informative way. Proposed in the 1970's, The Anthropic Principle attempts to explain how the physics of the universe may be perfectly tuned for life to evolve. Any small tweak in gravity or quantum mechanics would make all matter, planets, stars and life-forms impossible, yet it all is in perfect working order. Why? The Anthropic Principle poses a simple yet plausible explanation, and is at the heart of a growing debate in the world of physics, philosophy and religion. Is it the answer to the "why" of the universe, or does it ignore the traditional methodology of physics and science? In the age of the Large Hadron Collider and breathtaking scientific exploration of atomic particles, physics may be about to revolutionize our view of humankind's place in the universe. Shot on 16 MM film, Simple Nature is illustrated with animated graphics, visuals and music. A good discussion starter to explore the Anthropic Principle in physics, philosophy, religious studies, cosmology and astronomy classes.--Back cover
