“The boldness of asking deep questions may require unforeseen flexibility if we are to accept the answers.”
BRIAN GREENE, THE ELEGANT UNIVERSE: SUPERSTRINGS, HIDDEN DIMENSIONS, AND THE QUEST FOR THE ULTIMATE THEORY
Renowned physicist and award-winning, bestselling author Brian Greene writes to help us understand our “elegant universe.” Until the End of Time is a captivating exploration of the cosmos and our quest to find meaning in this vast expanse.
Brian Greene takes us on a journey from the big bang to the end of time, exploring how lasting structures formed, how life and mind emerged, and how we grapple with our existence through narrative, myth, religion, creative expression, science, the quest for truth, and a deep longing for the eternal. From particles to planets, consciousness to creativity, matter to meaning — Greene allows us all to grasp and appreciate our fleeting but utterly exquisite moment in the cosmos.
Greene, a professor of physics and mathematics, is director of Columbia University’s Center for Theoretical Physics and is renowned for his groundbreaking discoveries in superstring theory. He is the author of The Fabric of the Cosmos, The Hidden Reality, and Pulitzer Prize finalist The Elegant Universe, which have collectively spent sixty-five weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.
