The New Universe and the Human Future Summary


The New Universe and the Human Future: How a Shared Cosmology Could Transform the World by Nancy Ellen Abrams

After a four-century rupture between science and the questions of value and meaning, this groundbreaking book presents an explosive and potentially life-altering idea: if the world could agree on a shared creation story based on modern cosmology and biology - a story that has just become available - it would redefine our relationship with Planet Earth and benefit all of humanity, now and into the distant future. Written in eloquent, accessible prose and illustrated with magnificent colour images throughout, including innovative simulations of the evolving universe, this book brings the new scientific picture of the universe to life. It interprets what our human place in the cosmos may mean for us and our descendants. It offers unique insights into how this newfound knowledge could potentially be used to find solutions to seemingly intractable global problems such as climate change and unsustainable growth. It explains why we need to 'think cosmically, act globally' in order to have a long-term, prosperous future on Earth.

The New Universe and the Human Future Reviews


So what kind of meaning do Primack and Abrams find in the cosmos? Their book answers this question through a totally engaging and very readable exploration of 'the new universe' explained by quantum physics and contemporary astrophysics. . . . The View from the Center of the Universe goes a long way in that direction, and it should be read by anyone, not just scientists, who worry about the human condition.
