Why Does the World Exist?: An Existential Detective Story by Jim Holt


on this miraculous and profound work, an irreverent sleuth strains the ridentitydle of existence from the traditional global to modern times.

whether framed philosophically as “Why is there a world reasonably than nothing at all?” or more colloquially as “but, Mommy, who made God?” the metaphysical thriller approximately how we came into existence continues to be probably the most fractious and engaging question of all time. Following within the footsteps of Christopher Hitchens, Roger Penrose, and even Stephen Hawking, Jim Holt emerges with an engrossing narrative that strains our recent efforts to take hold of the origins of the universe. As he is taking on the function of cosmological detective, the brilliant but slyly humorous Holt contends that we'd were too slim in restricting our suspects to God vs. the large Bang. whether interviewing a cranky Oxford thinker, a Physics Nobel Laureate, or a French Buddhist monk, Holt pursues unexplored and continuously bizarre angles to this cosmic puzzle. the outcome is a smart synthesis of cosmology, mathematics, and physics—one that propels his personal work to the extent of philosophy itself.
