In this elegant and exciting book, John D. Barrow challenges the quest for ultimate explanation.

Praise for Theories Of Everything

“An exhilarating journey that cuts across a vast terrain of conceptual landmarks: from physics to metaphysics, mathematics to philosophy, and from mythology to theology... Without a doubt an important, engaging and highly literate book”

New Scientist

“Bridges the gab between the research frontiers of theoretical physics and the aspirations of man to understand what is going on”

Times Literary Supplement

“Engaging and accessible”

Daily Telegraph

“Theories of Everything is a beautifully written and thoughtful attempt to make sense of this difficult area of enquiry”

Nature

“What an elegant exposition lies here: not for everyone, to be sure, but for those familiar with astronomer Barrow's rich background in mathematics and in the history and philosophy of science, a treasure of learning and insight”
