By Steven Weinberg,Ineke Mertens,Hans Zuidervaart
Weinberg schenkt veel aandacht aan de moeite die het gekost heeft om te leren hoe wij iets over de wereld kunnen leren – en welke ingrijpende veranderingen in het denken dat met zich heeft meegebracht. Hij verdiept zich met de kennis van nu in de problemen van zijn grote voorgangers. Het resultaat is verrassend en prikkelend.
Ian McEwan: ‘Ik heb De wereld verklaard geboeid gelezen. Het verandert het onedele metaal van een gewone wetenschapsgeschiedenis in zuiver goud – in een magistrale lofzang op de lange, heroïsche en nog altijd onvoltooide strijd om de natuur te begrijpen. Ik heb voor het eerst begrepen hoe moeilijk het is geweest om goden, mensen en doelen uit onze verklaringen voor natuurverschijnselen te verwijderen. Dit is een betoog dat elk relativisme met groot succes overboord zet. Het boek is een intellectueel inspirerend overzicht van wat Weinberg ons grote verhaal noemt, ons avontuur van georganiseerde nieuwsgierigheid. Ik heb het boek vol opwinding uitgelezen.’
