From Eternity to Book Club: Chapter Ten

Here is a link to this week’s blog posting of the book club for From Eternity to Here by Sean Carroll:

From Eternity to Book Club: Chapter Ten

Sean Carroll writes in the blog posting:

One of the fun things about this chapter is the extent to which it is driven by direct quotations from great thinkers — Boltzmann, of course, but also Poincare, Nietzsche, Lucretius, Eddington, Feynman … It’s very educational to learn that ideas like “the multiverse” and “the anthropic principle” aren’t recent inventions of a new generation of postmodern physicists, but in fact have been part of respectable scientific discourse for over a century.
