About This Item

New York: William Morrow, 1989. First Edition, First Printing. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine complete dustjacket. The author presents a masterful, easy to grasp, overview of science's answers to the great questions as we understand them today. The heart of the book consists of six chapters, each devoted to a case study of one of the major mysteries of modern science - The origin of life on earth, the real sources of human behaviour and social patterns, how we acquire language, the fundamental nature of our thinking processes, the possible existence of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe, the impact of our own scrutiny on what we observe as real. Each chapter is presented in the form of a jury trial with conventional scientific wisdom as the prosecution and alternate views presented by the defence. PLEASE NOTE: A HEAVY VOLUME OF 0.92 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST 15. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
