Marcelo Gleiser makes us feel what a privilege it is to be human. Marilynne Robinson, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Humanities Medal, and author of Gilead and Absence of Mind: The Dispelling of Inwardness from the Modern Myth of the Self. We've come to know far more than our ancestors could possibly have imagined-including the depth of our ignorance. The most difficult part was the middle portion where the author surveys quantum physics. While the concepts or ideas in this section are difficult to grasp, I think the reader who stays with it gets a better grasp about science's limitations.
Marcelo Gleiser writes as a scientist who believes in more than just one approach to life's most enduring questions . I got this book from the library because I was interested in the title
Marcelo Gleiser writes as a scientist who believes in more than just one approach to life's most enduring questions and views science as an endless process of discovery of the world both around us, and within. I got this book from the library because I was interested in the title. No cosmology book that I had ever read before mentioned creation myths and the "Big Bang" in the same sentence. The book was a wonderful journey through humanity's attempts to explore and understand the complicated reality around them.

Gleiser received his bachelor's degree in 1981 from the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro, his . c. degree in 1982 from the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, and his P. in 1986 from King's College London.
Marcelo Gleiser refutes the notion that science and spirituality are irreconcilable. I am lucky enough to have Marcelo Gleiser as a professor this quarter at Dartmouth College. In a class that closely parallels his book, we have explored everything he has written. He is a fascinating person, and his personality and enthusiasm for the subject spreads throughout his book. This is an interesting view of the universe around us and how that view has changed over time.

It was awarded to physicist Marcelo Gleiser, an astronomy professor. It recognises outstanding contributions to 'affirming life's spiritual dimension'. The physics and astronomy professor, who specialises in cosmology, is the first Latin American to win the award, the John Templeton Foundation said in a statement. Scroll down for video.
