The Beginning of Infinity, Chapter 15. Better yet, read the whole book (slowly and carefully).

Finally, someone nominates Beginning of Infinity! What a great book.

Unsurprisingly I recommend (1) “The Fabric of Reality” (2) “The Beginning of Infinity” by @DavidDeutschOxf . Concurrently watch his talks on YouTube (see @dela3499’s playlist here [link] ) Then if you need more: read Popper for philosophy, Feynman for physics.

It’s at the top of my list as well. Mentioned it in most recent podcast episode a few weeks back. Great book.

That’s my favorite book

One of my Foundational book recommendations

A deep theory of why humanity is destined to make progress may be found in David Deutsch’s dazzling The Beginning of Infinity. Deutsch presents science as a force for betterment, since it impels us to explain the world while forcing us to acknowledge our fallibility.

Another great book

Not because I agreed with it all, but The Beginning of Infinity was 👌

The Beginning of Infinity hurt my brain in a great way -

Deutsch has an important message . . . that our destiny is to be explainers of the world around us, and explaining is the key to our mastery. . . . He writes clearly and thinks wisely. His book could help the world toward better ways of dealing with its problems.
