The Anthropic Cosmological Principle Summary


The Anthropic Cosmological Principle by John D. Barrow (Professor of Astronomy, Professor of Astronomy, University of Sussex)

Is there any connection between the vastness of the universes of stars and galaxies and the existence of life on a small planet out in the suburbs of the Milky Way? This book shows that there is. In their classic work, John Barrow and Frank Tipler examine the question of Mankind's place in the Universe, taking the reader on a tour of many scientific disciplines and offering fascinating insights into issues such as the nature of life, the serach for extraterrestrial intelligence, and the past history and fate of our universe.
