Most widely held works by Roger Penrose
The emperor's new mind : concerning computers, minds, and the laws of physics by Roger Penrose( Book )

31 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 2,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The road to reality : a complete guide to the laws of the universe by Roger Penrose( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 2,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roger Penrose, one of the most accomplished scientists of our time, presents the only comprehensive and comprehensible account of the physics of the universe. From the very first attempts by the Greeks to grapple with the complexities of our known world to the latest application of infinity in physics, The Road to Reality carefully explores the movement of the smallest atomic particles and reaches into the vastness of intergalactic space. Here, Penrose examines the mathematical foundations of the physical universe, exposing the underlying beauty of physics and giving us one the most important works in modern science writing
The nature of space and time by Stephen Hawking( Book )

27 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 1,747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united in a single quantum theory of gravity? Two of the world's most famous physicists--Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose--disagree on this. Here they explain their positions in a work based on six lectures with a final debate, all originally presented at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge.--From publisher description
Shadows of the mind : a search for the missing science of consciousness by Roger Penrose( Book )

46 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A New York Times bestseller when it appeared in 1989, Roger Penrose's The Emperor's New Mind was universally hailed as a marvelous survey of modern physics as well as a brilliant reflection on the human mind, offering a new perspective on the scientific landscape and a visionary glimpse of the possible future of science. Now, in Shadows of the Mind, Penrose offers another exhilarating look at modern science as he mounts an even more powerful attack on artificial intelligence. But perhaps more important, in this volume he points the way to a new science, one that may eventually explain the physical basis of the human mind
The large, the small, and the human mind by Roger Penrose( Book )

63 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 1,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides an accessible, illuminating & stimulating introduction to Penrose's vision of theoretical physics for the 21st century. His enthusiasm & insight shine through this brilliant account of the problems of modern physics
Cycles of time : an extraordinary new view of the universe by Roger Penrose( Book )

24 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A groundbreaking book providing a new take on three of cosmology's most profound questions: What, if anything, came before the Big Bang? What is the source of order in our universe? What is the universe's ultimate future? Current understanding of our universe dictates that all matter will eventually thin out to zero density, with huge black holes finally evaporating away into massless energy. Roger Penrose--one of the most innovative mathematicians of our time--turns around this predominant picture of the universe's "heat death," arguing how the expected ultimate fate of our accelerating, expanding universe can actually be reinterpreted as the "Big Bang" of a new one. Along the way to this remarkable cosmological picture, Penrose sheds new light on basic principles that underlie the behavior of our universe, describing various standard and nonstandard cosmological models, the fundamental role of the cosmic microwave background, and the key status of black holes. Intellectually thrilling and accessible, Cycles of Time is another essential guide to the universe from one of our preeminent thinkers"--Provided by publisher
