Boek cover Shadows Of The Mind van Roger Penrose (Paperback)
A Search for the Missing Science of Consciousness
'One of the most important works...of the twentieth century' The Times Shadows of the Mind is a profound exploration of what modern physics has to tell us about the human mind. A visionary description of what a new physics - one that is adequate to account for our extraordinary brain - might look like. It is also a bold speculation on the biological process that makes consciousness what it is. In this illuminating book Penrose provides powerful arguments to support his conclusion that there is something in the conscious activity of the brain that transcends computation - something...

Boek cover The Road to Reality van Roger Penrose (Paperback)
A Complete Guide to the Laws of the Universe
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...

Boek cover Cycles of Time van Roger Penrose (Paperback)
An Extraordinary New View of the Universe
**WINNER OF THE 2020 NOBEL PRIZE IN PHYSICS** What came before the Big Bang? How did the universe begin and must it inevitably end? In this remarkable book Roger Penrose brilliantly illuminates some of the deepest mysteries of the universe. Cycles of Time contains a penetrating analysis of the second law of thermodynamics - according to which the 'randomness' of our world is continually increasing - and a thorough examination of the light-cone geometry of space-time. It combines these two central themes to show how the expected ultimate fate of our accelerating, expanding...

Boek cover The Nature of Space and Time van Stephen Hawking (Paperback)
Princeton Science Library
Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? 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 into a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined? In The Nature of Space and Time, two of the world's most famous physicists--Stephen Hawking (A Brief History of Time) and Roger Penrose (The Road to Reality)--debate these questions. The authors outline how their positions have further diverged...

Boek cover Emperors New Mind Reissue van Roger Penrose (Paperback)
Concerning Computers, Minds, and The Laws of Physics
For many decades, the proponents of `artificial intelligence' have maintained that computers will soon be able to do everything that a human can do. In his bestselling work of popular science, Sir Roger Penrose takes us on a fascinating tour through the basic principles of physics, cosmology, mathematics, and philosophy to show that human thinking can never be emulated by a machine. Oxford Landmark Science books are 'must-read' classics of modern science writing which have crystallized big ideas, and shaped the way we think.

Boek cover Fashion, Faith, and Fantasy in the New Physics of the Universe van Roger Penrose (Paperback)
What can fashionable ideas, blind faith, or pure fantasy possibly have to do with the scientific quest to understand the universe? Surely, theoretical physicists are immune to mere trends, dogmatic beliefs, or flights of fancy? In fact, acclaimed physicist and bestselling author Roger Penrose argues that researchers working at the extreme frontiers of physics are just as susceptible to these forces as anyone else. In this provocative book, he argues that fashion, faith, and fantasy, while sometimes productive and even essential in physics, may be leading today's researchers astray in three of...

Boek cover De weg naar de werkelijkheid van Roger Penrose
een complete gids naar de wetten van het heelal
Als er nu één boek is dat ik keer op keer opensla om te raadplegen of gewoon om in te bladeren dan is het wel dit monumentale werk van Sir Roger Penrose. Wat een boek! De meesterverteller neemt ons bij de hand en leidt ons van de wiskunde in de oudheid door de natuurwetenschappen van de afgelopen eeuwen naar een visie op toekomstige inzichten in wat we nu eigenlijk bedoelen met ‘werkelijkheid’. Het boek is een aaneenschakeling van pareltjes uit de natuurkunde met mijn lievelingshoofdstuk over de thermodynamische erfenis van de ‘Big Bang’ als schitterend voorbeeld. Bij tijden...
