Why Jonathan recommends this book

Jonathan Zenios

Rumours of the death of the renaissance man are much exaggerated as David Deutsch brilliantly demonstrates in his profound book about the growth of knowledge and human progress. Unsurprisingly not a quick read, but a deeply satisfying book which covers everything from quantum mechanics to why flowers are beautiful, taking in Cantor, Socrates and Descartes on the way.
