What conceptual blind spot saved the traditional Greeks (unlike the Indians and Maya) from constructing an idea of 0? Why did St. Augustine equate nothingness with the satan? What tortuous capability did 17th-century scientists hire of their makes an attempt to create a vacuum? And why do modern quantum physicists think that the void is really seething with subatomic task? You’ll locate the solutions during this dizzyingly erudite and skillfully defined ebook by way of the English cosmologist John D. Barrow.
Ranging via arithmetic, theology, philosophy, literature, particle physics, and cosmology, The publication of not anything explores the iconic carry that vacuity has exercised at the human mind's eye. Combining high-wire hypothesis with a wealth of reference that takes in Freddy Mercury and Shakespeare along Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, and Stephen Hawking, the result's a desirable day trip to the vanishing aspect of our wisdom.

John D. Barrow's Pi within the Sky is a profound -- and profoundly various -- exploration of the area of arithmetic: the place it comes from, what it really is, and the place it's going to take us if we keep on with it to the restrict in our look for the last word which means of the universe. Barrow starts off by way of investigating even if math is a merely human invention encouraged by means of our functional wishes. Or is it anything inherent in nature ready to be discovered?
In answering those questions, Barrow offers a bridge among the customarily irreconcilable worlds of arithmetic and theology. alongside the best way, he treats us to a heritage of counting worldwide, from Egyptian hieroglyphics to logical friction, from quantity mysticism to Marxist arithmetic. And he introduces us to a number of surprising people who have concept a number of the private and strangest strategies that human minds have ever notion, from Lao-Tse to Robert Pirsig, Charles Darwin, and Umberto Eco. Barrow hence offers the historic framework and the highbrow instruments essential to an realizing of a few of today's weightiest mathematical innovations.
