From the author of the the international bestsellers Aliens Among Us, Life After Dark and Experimental Physics in Practice comes the enthralling new book Truth? Philosophical Questions in the Age of the Machine.
Answers are hard to come by, but answers are what we need moving forwards. Science and the technologies that it spawns are moving at an ever accelerating rate, raising societal questions of not just how to deal with it, but even what are universal truths?
These questions are not just for scientists to confront alone, but for every man, woman and child. As science takes us closer to science fiction, does it move us even close to what some call god?
This is the line that we walk. Bell probes not just the sciences that we face, but our very souls, asking tough questions about what it means to be human and how do we apply that moving forwards.
Truth? Philosophical Questions in the Age of the Machine is a fascinating tour through the cutting edge sciences that Bell himself deals with on a day-to-day basis. He’ll take you inside his lab and make you face the tough questions. Are you brave enough for the journey?
Praise for Truth?
