A world-renowned astrophysicist and a science philosopher present a new, scientifically supported understanding of the universe, one that will forever change our personal relationship with the cosmos. For four hundred years, since early scientists discovered that the universe did not revolve around the earth, people have felt cut off - adrift in a meaningless cosmos. That is about to change. In their groundbreaking new book, The View from the Center of the Universe, Joel R. Primack, Ph.D., one of the world's leading cosmologists, and Nancy Ellen Abrams, a philosopher and writer, use recent advances in astronomy, physics, and cosmology to frame a compelling new theory of how to understand the universe and our role in it. This new cosmology clarifies how the universe operates, what it's made of, how it may have originated, and how it is evolving.
