Nekonečné nesmírně obdivuhodné a překrásné


Klíčem k pochopení formy je vývoj - ontogeneze - proces, jehož prostřednictvím z jednobuněčného vajíčka vzniká složitý živočich, který sestává z mnoha miliard buněk. Tohle úžasné divadlo odolávalo jako jedna z velkých nevyřešených záhad biologie po téměř dvě století. Pokroky v biologii ontogeneze a v evolučně ontogenetické biologii, přezdívané evo-devo, odhalují mnohé o neviditelných genech a určitých jednoduchých pravidlech, která konstruují živočišnou formu a evoluci. Mnohé z toho, co jsme se už dozvěděli, je tak ohromující a neočekávané, že to pronikavě přetváří náš obraz o tom, jak evoluce funguje. Tato kniha líčí příběh zmíněné nové revoluce evo-devo a jejích vhledů do problematiky, jak se živočišná říše vyvíjí.

Částice na konci vesmíru


Objev Higgsova bosonu je podle mnoha komentátorů nejvýznamnějším průlomem v našem chápání vesmíru po rozbití atomu. Objeven byl díky miliardovým investicím, desetiletím snažení a úsilí šesti tisíc vědců pracujících u urychlovače LHC ve Švýcarsku. Co je na něm tak zvláštního, že se mu říká „božská částice“ a svým objevitelům přinesl dokonce Nobelovu cenu za fyziku? Carroll vysvětluje, že bez něj bychom nevěděli, odkud vlastně berou elementární částice svou hmotnost. Nalezli jsme v něm poslední díl skládačky, vysvětlení záhad běžné hmoty: atomů a sil, které stojí za vším počínaje DNA a konče globálním oteplováním.

The Big Picture


Where are we? Who are we? Do our beliefs, hopes and dreams mean anything out there in the void? Can human purpose and meaning ever fit into a scientific worldview? Acclaimed award-winning author Sean Carroll brings his extraordinary intellect to bear on the realms of knowledge, the laws of nature and the most profound questions about life, death and our place in it all. In a dazzlingly unique presentation, Carroll takes us through the scientific revolution's avalanche of discoveries, from Darwin and Einstein to the origins of life, consciousness and the universe itself. Delving into the way the world works at the quantum, cosmic and human levels, he reveals how human values relate to scientific reality. An extraordinary synthesis of cosmos-sprawling science and profound thought, The Big Picture is Carroll's quest to explain our world. Destined to sit alongside the works of our greatest thinkers, from Stephen Hawking and Carl Sagan to Daniel Dennett and E. O. Wilson, this book shows that while our lives may be forever dwarfed by the immensity of the universe, they can be redeemed by our capacity to comprehend it and give it meaning.

Something Deeply Hidden


Quantum physics is not mystifying. The implications are mind-bending, and not yet fully understood, but this revolutionary theory is truly illuminating. It stands as the best explanation of the fundamental nature of our world. Spanning the history of quantum discoveries, from Einstein and Bohr to the present day, Something Deeply Hidden is the essential guide to the most intriguing subject in science. Acclaimed physicist and writer Sean Carroll debunks the myths, resurrects and reinstates the Many-Worlds interpretation, and presents a new path towards solving the apparent conflict between quantum mechanics and Einstein's theory of general relativity. In doing so, he fills a gap in the science that has existed for almost a century. A magisterial tour, Something Deeply Hidden encompasses the cosmological and everyday implications of quantum reality and multiple universes. And - finally - it all makes sense.
