Rubenstein grounds the current debate on the plurality of universes on solid scholarship, skillfully exploring its historical and philosophical roots. -- Marcelo Gleiser, Dartmouth College This is a work that performs the 'many-oneness' of the multiverse, whose history and potentiality it maps. As she traces the startling philosophical depths, mystical ancestry, and scientific shocks of this cosmic boundlessness, Rubenstein's brilliance sparkles like its innumerable stars. -- Catherine Keller, author of Face of the Deep: A Theology of Becoming Some physicists suggest that our cosmos has been caught in an endless loop, repeatedly cycling between big bangs since time immemorial. In Worlds Without End, Mary-Jane Rubenstein provides a remarkable tour of how such ideas--and competing ideas about whether our universe is embedded within some larger multiverse--have likewise been cycling throughout Western thought for millennia. This deeply learned excavation is a rare accomplishment: a page-turner that asks large questions about science, philosophy, and religion. Fascinating. -- David Kaiser, author of How the Hippies Saved Physics: Science, Counterculture, and the Quantum Revival We are living through a golden age of cosmology, when observations reveal a universe 13.8 billion years big and new theories and new evidence vie with one another almost on a daily basis. Rubenstein is an expert guide to this dramatic scene. Uncovering humorous comparisons with the past, she shows that our golden age is tarnished in only a few ways. We cannot tell which of the many-worlds hypotheses is the right one, whether they exist under an integrated set of laws, and we may never be able to so. Yet the quest continues and produces many profound insights. Rubenstein shows the way scientific worldviews grow from the kind of questions we ask, how metaphysics and physics are mutually entangled, and how the many worlds of her title emerge, again and again over two thousand years, often in spite of their authors' intentions and taste. A witty and mature view of views. -- Charles Jencks , author of The Garden of Cosmic Speculation A must read for anyone who is interested in the evolution of human thought about the cosmos. The reader is led through the history of philosophical, religious and scientific ideas and arguments for the existence of many worlds then left to contemplate their own ending to the cosmic story. A beautiful and authoritative description of the struggles and developments of competing ideas about nature for the past three millenia -- Laura Mersini-Houghton, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Rubenstein's witty, thought-provoking history of philosophy and physics leaves one in awe of just how close Thomas Aquinas and American physicist Steven Weinberg are in spirit as they seek ultimate answers. Publishers Weekly Wonderful... A fun, mind-stretching read, clear and enlightening. San Francisco Book Review A fascinating and very well-written book... Green Spirit Magazine An excellent starting point for those wishing to go even deeper down the throat of the wormhole. Recommended. CHOICE If one seeks a scholarly account of the main ideas rather than of the detailed science, then Worlds Without End is excellent. Physics Today

Von Robert Steven Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
It has taken more than a century, but cutting-edge science is finally approaching a broader understanding of the implications of quantum physics. People who follow current science publications and TV stations like The Science, History and Discovery channels are becoming more exposed to the concept of "overlapping, multi-dimensional universes." The author takes us on an interesting journey through the most popular new hypotheses in this intriguing new area of thinking. The potential implications are mind numbing. While the narrative of this book is somewhat easy for the layman to follow, exposure, or at least some interest in cosmology, will help the book to flow for the average reader.

Better in a different universe 12. Mai 2014
Von Peter Byrne - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Overall, a decent tour of the many worlds scene pre-20th century, but it either ignores (or is ignorant of) relatively recent work on the many worlds theory in philosophy of science by Simon Saunders, David Wallace and many others at University of Oxford and elsewhere. Nor does it mention the important work by John Bell on many worlds theory in the early 1960s. Nor does it reference the latest edition of Hugh Everett III's original many worlds theory: "The Everett Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics: Collected Works 1955-1980" (Princeton University Press, 2012). And it does not reference the popular biography of Everett that details the historical and scientific formation of his theory in the context of mid-century American physics: "The Many Worlds of Hugh Everett III, Multiple Universes, Mutual Assured Destruction, and the Meltdown of a Nuclear Family" (Oxford University Press, 2010). Rubenstein has written a worthwhile book that is oddly pocked with significant intellectual and historical gaps.

Wonderful book. It's really dense 25. September 2014
Von Joseph Carlough - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Wonderful book. It's really dense, there is so much information in here, but if you have any interest in the multiverse, give this a read. The writing is really academic, but warm and inviting at the same time. This really sated my appetite for something philosophical!

A Philosophical and Theological Review 30. September 2014
Von bonnie_blu - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
If you are looking for a book that explains current theories of the multiverse, this is not it. Rubenstein's book reviews the history of the "many-worlds" philosophies and theories from ancient Greece to modern times. In addition, since she is a professor of religion, she is more focused on theological and philosophical history / effects of a many-worlds view than a purely scientific book would be. I have no problem with her doing so, but readers need to be aware of the focus of the book.

As far as content, I was surprised by some of her choices of historical figures and current scientists. I feel she left out important viewpoints and the most recent findings in multiverse theories. Also, I feel that she focused too much on little known, or fringe theories. For example, Hugh Everett III's work and its analysis should have been included. She is a gifted writer and the book is easy to read. As a result, the reader does not need a background in history or physics to understand the contents, but even so, at least some exposure to physics would be helpful.

cosmic intelligence 11. April 2014
Von Multiversalist - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Thorough coverage of multiverse theories including simulated universes. Some of the comparisons between religion and scientific cosmology seem to overlook the key difference of the cosmic intelligence element.
