15. September 1998
In Visions, physicist and author Michio Kaku examines the great scientific revolutions that have dramatically reshaped the twentieth century--the quantum mechanics, biogenetics, and artificial intelligence--and shows how they will change and alter science and the way we live.

The next century will witness more far-reaching scientific revolutions, as we make the transition from unraveling the secrets of nature to becoming masters of nature. We will no longer be passive bystanders to the dance of the universe, but will become creative choreographers of matter, life, and intelligence.

The first section of Visions presents a shocking look at a cyber-world infiltrated by millions of tiny intelligence systems. Part two illustrates how the decoding of DNA's genetic structure will allow humans the "godlike ability to manipulate life almost at will." Finally, VISIONS focuses on the future of quantum physics, in which physicists will perfect new ways to manipulate matter and harness the cosmic energy of the universe.

What makes Michio Kaku's vision of the science of the future so compelling--and so different from the mere forecasts of most thinkers--is that it is based on the groundbreaking research taking place in labs today, as well as the consensus of over 150 of Kaku's scientific colleagues. Science, for all its breathtaking change, evolves slowly; we can accurately predict, asserts Kaku, what the direction of science will be, based on the paths that are being forged today.

A thrilling, unique narrative that brings together the thinking of many of the world's most accomplished scientists to explore the world of the future, Visions is science writing at its best.

Take it easy: that's Michio Kaku's motto. Given the extraordinary advances science has thrown up in time for the millennium, the only way you could possibly fit them into a single volume is by a correspondingly massive simplification.

Subtitled How Science Will Revolutionize the 21st Century and Beyond, Visions assumes that, by and large, scientists get to do whatever they like, that all technologies are consumer technologies, and that consumers welcome anything and everything science throws at them. Kaku gets away with this frankly dodgy strategy by dint of sheer hard work. He has based his predictions on interviews with more than 150 renowned working scientists; he integrates these interviews with a huge body of original journalistic material; and, above all, he roots that mass of information on an entirely reasonable model of what the purpose of science will be in the third millennium. Up until now, science has expended its efforts on decoding most of the fundamental natural processes--"the dance," as Kaku puts it, of elementary particles deep inside stars and the rhythms of DNA molecules coiling and uncoiling within our bodies. Science's task now, Kaku believes, is to cross-pollinate advances thrown up by the study of matter, biology, and mind--modern science's three main theaters of endeavor. "We are now making the transition from amateur chess players to grand masters," he writes, "from observers to choreographers of nature." Then again, he also believes that "the Internet ... will eventually become a 'Magic Mirror' that appears in fairy tales, able to speak with the wisdom of the human race." Kaku, in short, deserves a good slapping--but he also deserves to be read. --Simon Ings,


Critical acclaim for Michio Kaku's previous book, Hyperspace:

"Among the best of its genre to appear in recent years...What a wonderful adventure it is, trying to think the unthinkable!"
--The New York Times Book Review

"A roller coaster of an intellectual ride through the extraordinary world of black holes, wormholes, parallel universes, higher dimensions and time travel."
--Philadelphia Inquirer

"Mesmerizing...the reader exits dizzy, elated and looking at the world in a
literally revolutionary way."
--Washington Post

5.0 von 5 Sternen Professor Kaku's Visions 1. April 2000
A visitor from another planet seeking to find Inventive and Creative Geniuses rather than Ingenious Followers should probably look for scientists who popularize complicated science, and Kaku is one of the outstanding people who do this. Others are Gribbin, Ferris, Davies, the late Asimov, Greene, Smolin, Thorne, Ruelle, and a few others. There are exceptions, of course, even in this list, and there are creative geniuses who do not popularize, but in general it seems to be the case that the very creative geniuses find the translation of quantitative language into ordinary English or other verbal languages to be both a source of inspiration for themselves and for others. Kaku, Gribbin, Ferris, and the late Asimov do it often, not just once - and that is an even stronger sign of creativity. Kaku made important contributions to string theory. Most creative geniuses also realize that the essence of science is its spirit of inquiry and knowledge and learning with minimal human error rather than its materialist aspects. Creative geniuses like Aristotle and Da Vinci and Kaku, project ahead - often hundreds of years as Kaku does with the help of Nobel prize winners and other great scientists. They tend to be non-mainstream creators, too, like Socrates and Einstein and Weinberg and Dirac and Edison and Faraday. Those of us who want science, engineering, philosophy, and all subjects to be creative rather than "follower" oriented, would do well to form clasic libraries composed of authors like Kaku.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent summary of things to come 10. Januar 2000
Von Rufus
Visions is an excellent scentific book. A lot of research has gone into it, and he words his findings so that even students can understand. Some of the technologies in this book makes your mind wander and ponder about possibilities. Unlike other scentific books that run along a similar line, he focuses on the topic, rarely gets sidetracked, and keeps it interesting and thought-provoking. I especially enjoyed the final part about the fate of the universe and the different possible technology levels of races and what they are capabable of.I would recommend this book to anyone with even a mild interest in science and technology.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A true Vision of the future 31. Juli 2000
Michio Kaku is a true visionary. "Visions: How Science Will Revolutionize the 21st Century" is one of the best books I have ever read. It explains complex theories in laymans terms, while still giving enough information to satisfy any intelectual. Visions is a must-read for anyone interested in computers, life sciences, space travel, or any other up-and-coming field of science.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good science fiction, poor hard facts 10. Februar 1999
Von S. Brown
Kaku is an intriguing writer. Following on such works as Hyperspace (which was excellent), Visions is a mediocre forey into scientific speculation (science fiction). The book is a good summary of late 20th century scientific thought but does not necessarily translate into a spellbinding glimpse into the 21st century.
Problems With the Text:
-- Kaku works in the simple sciences and apparently suffers from scientific hubris. The theories presented are simply theories, but Kaku sometimes ignores this fact. His engaging discussion can easily make the theories appear more factual than is the case. Science can solve and explain everything is the moral of this story.
-- This science fiction piece is entirely Godless. I was struck by the relative lack of religious and moral overtones to the theories -- even in sensative topics such as genetic engineering.
-- Kaku strongly assumes that evolution is positive. In discussing the evolution of societies from Type 0 to Type III societies (we are currently a 0), Kaku assumes that "progress" is analogous with evolution. He assumes that evolution leads to "better" societies.
Good Points in the Text:
Kaku does have a convincing writing style and a particular knack for simplifying complex concepts. From the perspective of a summary volume of late 20th century scientific thought, Visions provides a good overview of many facets of modern sciences and traces the origins of the current thought.
War diese Rezension für Sie hilfreich?
Michio Kaku has done a great job in presenting the current state of our science and technology, and how its exponential progress during the past few decades will influence and impinge on what happens in the next five decades or so. He clearly conveys his forecasts in a very objective, non-foreboding light based not only on his first-hand knowledge and experience in the physical sciences but also on interviews with an array of specialists in modern biology and the computer field(s). The reader is not expected to believe that everything Michio predicts will come true according to his timeline, if at all. Nonetheless, his book comes at the perfect time when we contemplate and wonder what science has in store for us at this turn of the century and the millennium, when we reluctantly accede to recent claims of the "end of science", and when we keep our minds open instead to the thrilling possibilities of yet unexplored scientific and technological frontiers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent view of how today is becoming tomorrow. 23. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Michio Kaku paints a wonderful and sometimes frightening picture of what humanity will become, and how it will define itself through technology. It was breathtaking to not only imagine, but to see how the miracles of the future are being built right now before our eyes. It raises questions and looks at possibilities that boggle the mind in a light that is distinctly different from most authors. It doesn't pretend there won't be challenges raised in the future, but also veers away from doom-and-gloom predictions of a technological apocalypse, which leaves us with an honest and realistic approach to the precarious business of predicting the future. One walks away from this book feeling elated, but also sober, as anyone should after soaring to the tremendous heights that Mr. Kaku leads his readers through. A thorough pleasure to read, and an eye opening experience to say the least.
