The World Itself – Världen Själv

By Ulf Danielsson

Can physics alone explain the human experience of the world? 

In The World Itself – confronting the popular notions of the latest mathematics and physics – Ulf Danielsson reveals a blind spot in the history of Western science: the absence of the human body and the senses in the equations. The provocative statements are: The universe is not mathematics. There is a difference between model and reality. Living beings are not machines.

Ulf Danielsson is a professor of theoretical physics and one of Sweden’s clearest popular science voices. In The World Itself, he demystifies our strange and fantastic universe with a new approach that takes consciousness and the world we live in in bloody seriousness.
