Ultimate explanations of the universe by Michał Heller( Book )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We humans are collectively driven by a powerful, yet not fully explained, instinct to understand. This book examines how far our modern cosmological theories, with their sometimes audacious models, such as inflation, cyclic histories, quantum creation, parallel universes, can take us towards answering their questions. Can such theories lead us to ultimate truth, leaving nothing unexplained? Heller addresses the thorny problem of why and whether we should expect to find theories with all-encompassing explicative power."--[book cover]
Infinity : new research frontiers by Michał Heller( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The infinite! No other question has ever moved so profoundly the spirit of man; no other idea has so fruitfully stimulated his intellect; yet no other concept stands in greater need of clarification than that of the infinite.' David Hilbert (1862-1943). This interdisciplinary study of infinity explores the concept through the prism of mathematics and then offers more expansive investigations in areas beyond mathematical boundaries to reflect the broader, deeper implications of infinity for human intellectual thought. More than a dozen world-renowned researchers in the fields of mathematics, physics, cosmology, philosophy, and theology offer a rich intellectual exchange among various current viewpoints, rather than a static picture of accepted views on infinity. The book starts with a historical examination of the transformation of infinity from a philosophical and theological study to one dominated by mathematics. It then offers technical discussions on the understanding of mathematical infinity. Following this, the book considers the perspectives of physics and cosmology: Can infinity be found in the real universe? Finally, the book returns to questions of philosophical and theological aspects of infinity"--Provided by publisher
A comprehensible universe : the interplay of science and theology by George V Coyne( Book )

29 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why is our world comprehensible? This question seems so trivial that few people have dared to ask it. In this book we explore the deep roots of the mystery of rationality. The inquiry into the rationality of the world began over two-and-a-half-thousand years ago, when a few courageous people tried to understand the world with the help of reason alone, rejecting the comforting fabric of myth and legend."--BOOK JACKET
The science of space-time by Derek J Raine( Book )

Creative tension : essays on science and religion by Michał Heller( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The voice of a renowned professor of philosophy in Poland, who is also a Roman Catholic priest, is introduced to the United States in this collection of his provocative essays on the interplay of science and religion. Michael Heller progressively outlines systematic steps that might lead to a peaceful coexistence of these traditionally separate fields of study. Some essays have their roots in the author's work in physics and cosmology, while others present his theories on the language of God, creation, and transcendence, inspired by his work in the applications of so-called noncommutat

Theoretical foundations of cosmology : introduction to the global structure of space-time by Michał Heller( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book's principal aim is to clarify fundamental concepts, decipher mathematical structures used to model space-time and relativistic worlds, and to disclose their physical meaning. After each chapter, philosophical implications of the presented material are commented upon.Both special and general theories of relativity are presented in the book with the stress on their global aspects. Although global mathematical methods are extensively used throughout the book, the definitions of new concepts, short comments and examples make reading smooth without the need to consult other textbooks or review papers

Philosophy in science : an historical introduction by Michał Heller( Book )

20 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The traditional topics of the 'philosophy of nature' - space, time, causality, the structure of the universe - are overwhelmingly present in our modern scientific theories. This book traces the complex paths that discussion of these topics has followed, from Plato and Aristotle, through Descartes, Leibniz, Kant and other great thinkers, right up to the relativistic cosmologies and the grand unified theories of contemporary science. In the light of this historical development, it becomes clear that modern science gives us not only a technological power over the world, but also a deeper understa
