One of the most important controversies in modern science is explored by a world renowned astronomer. "All round us, pervading the fabric of our Milky Way and far beyond, there is an invisible sea of objects or constituents which comprise ninety percent or more of the mass of our cosmos. And despite our great telescopes and powerful rockets this mysterious agency still maddeningly evades all our efforts at detection. Nevertheless we know it is lurking there because of the effects it has on those structures such as galaxies and clusters of galaxies that we can see. . 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

THE EMPEROR'S NEW MIND: Concerning Computers, Minds, and the Laws of Physics, Penrose, Roger
10 Penrose, Roger THE EMPEROR'S NEW MIND: Concerning Computers, Minds, and the Laws of Physics
NY Oxford University Press 1990 Book Club (BCE/BOMC). 1 Soft Cover As New with no dust jacket 
Softcover. 8vo. 466 pp. B&W Illustrations. Book Club Edition. Publisher's glossy pictorial wraps. This is a new, unopened copy in perfect, pristine condition. AS NEW. For decades, proponents of artificial intelligence have argued that computers will soon be doing everything that a human mind can do. Admittedly, computers now play chess at the grandmaster level, but do they understand the game as we do? Can a computer eventually do everything a human mind can do? In this absorbing and frequently contentious book, Roger Penrose--eminent physicist and winner, with Stephen Hawking, of the prestigious Wolf prize--puts forward his view that there are some facets of human thinking that can never be emulated by a machine. Although the book ranges widely over relativity theory, quantum mechanics and cosmology, its central concern is what philosophers call the 'mind-body problem. ' Penrose examines what physics and mathematics can tell us about how the mind works, what they can't, and what we need to know to understand the physical processes of consciousness. In particular, he argues that there is an important gap in our knowledge at the place where classical and quantum physics meet. He is among a growing number of physicists who think Einstein wasn't being stubborn when he said his "little finger" told him that quantum mechanics is incomplete, and he concludes that laws even deeper than quantum mechanics are essential for the operation of a mind. To support this contention, Penrose takes the reader on a dazzling tour that covers such topics as complex numbers, Turing machines, complexity theory, quantum mechanics, formal systems, Godel undecidability, phase spaces, Hilbert spaces, black holes, white holes, Hawking radiation, entropy, quasicrystals, the structure of the brain, and scores of other subjects. Penrose's illuminating (and sometimes amusing) drawings highlight his discussions throughout. As Martin Gardner states in his foreword to the book, 'Penrose's achievement in mathematics and physics spring from a lifelong sense of wonder toward the mystery and beauty of being. His little finger tells him that the human mind is more than just a collection of tiny wires and switches. ' The Emperor's New Mind will appeal to anyone with a serious interest in modern physics and its relation to philosophical issues, as well as to physicists, mathematicians, philosophers and those on either side of the AI debate. . 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

Publisher's glossy wraps. 8vo. 242 pp. Illustrated with numerous charts, tables and drawings. This is an unmarked, seemingly unread copy. FINE. For all of you who break out in a sweat at the thought of thermodynamics, or freeze up at the mention of quantum mechanics, like a bolt from the blue, INSTANT PHYSICS will zap you through the fascinating history of our most basic, yet baffling, science.From the thousand-year search for proof of the existence of the ever-elusive atom to the varied and heated arguments behind the big bang theory, INSTANT PHYSICS answers all the heavy questions with a light touch. You'll learn: * How the Greek philosophers used the sledgehammer of mathematics to break apart the mysteries of the physical universe.* Why gravity is a "romantic" force.* How to tell the difference between a gluon, a meson, and a quark, even if you can't see them.INSTANT PHYSICS is crammed with special features, including chapter summaries, who's who lists, biographical and historical tidbits, and a host of illustrations, photos, equations, diagrams, and drawings..
