Everyday, we benefit from huge advances in both scientific theory and practice. What triggered this progress? In The Beginning of Infinity (2011) – a journey through the fundamental fields of science and philosophy – physicist David Deutsch argues that all progress results from one single human activity: the quest for explanations. Human creativity opens up limitless opportunities for progress, making knowledge the “beginning of infinity.”
David Deutsch is a highly influential researcher in the field of quantum physics. He lives and works in Oxford where he has been a visiting professor of physics since 1999. In 1998, Deutsch was awarded the Institute of Physics’ Paul Dirac Prize and Medal, one of the top awards for theoretical physics.
