Where do ideas come from? How do they get put into action? How can we create social structures that are productive and creative?
By tracing Niels Bohr's work from his 1913 atomic theory to the introduction and then refinement of the idea of complementarity, and by explicating different meanings of "complementarity" in Bohr and the relationships between it and Bohr's other concepts, this book offers an account of Bohr's work on complementarity and its significance.
A provocative account of the astounding new answers to the most basic philosophical questions: where did the universe come from and how will it end?
These fantastical myths are fun - but what are the real answers to such questions?Professor Richard Dawkins has teamed up with renowned illustrator Dave McKean to take you on an amazing journey from atoms to animals, pollination to paranoia, the big bang to the bigger picture.
Why is it that incredibly unlikely phenomena actually happen quite regularly and why should we, in fact, expect such things to happen? This book is aimed at anyone with an interest in coincidences, probability or gambling.
A largely autobiographical account of the author's life as one who fell in love first with physics and then with teaching physics to students.

Exercise is not only good for the body: it can transform your mind too. This new scientific revolution will teach you how to boost brain cells, protect yourself against mental illness and dementia, and ensure success in exams and the workplace.
Superconductivity is one of the most exciting areas of research in physics today. Outlining the history of its discovery, and the race to understand its many mysterious phenomena, this Very Short Introduction also explores the deep implications of the theory, and its potential to revolutionize the physics and technology of the future.
Our eyes are the result of an evolutionary adaptation to the sun's light. Since the sun is a G dwarf and emits most of its light in only a small part of the electromagnetic spectrum, our eyes are very limited in their capability to show us the universe. This book shows the fundamental change in our perception by covering the full spectrum of light.
