Carlo Rovelli

Overview

After sustained efforts by the world's brightest minds to grasp it, quantum theory still remains as perplexing and mysterious as when it was first developed almost a century ago. It seems that the more we learn about quantum phenomena, the more questions we have.

In his latest book Helgoland, renowned Italian theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli attempts to clarify this fascinating theory and bring us closer to the world of quanta. With his rich experience in the philosophy of science and history, Rovelli beautifully explains how quantum theory came to be, and what it tells us about the world we live in.
