First published in 1997 by Orion. Using Darwin's and Einstein's ideas the author suggests that the laws of nature are not fixed, but that they evolve in the same way that living things evolve. Smolin puts forward the possible unification of biology and physics to provide a view of the cosmos beyond both the notion of God and the existentialists.
This radical, exciting book draws as much on Darwinian ideas as on Einstein's to propose a way forward beyond theories that can only explain aspects of our universe, towards one that can explain it as a whole. Smolin suggests that the laws of nature are not fixed, but that they evolve in the same way that living things themselves evolve. Effectively, Smolin puts forward the possible unifica-tion of biology and physics, a view of the cosmos which moves beyond both the notion of God and the pessimism of Nietzsche and the existentialists.
