A Brief History of Time is a famous work of popular science. The famous physicist, in some ways successor to Isaac Newton and Einstein, explains complex concepts in astronomy and physics in a way that anyone can understand. Stephen Hawking believed strongly that everyone, at one time or another, asks a few basic questions, such as ´´How did the universe begin?´´ and ´´How does the universe work?´´ While we don´t have complete answers for these questions, or any of the others posed in the book, Hawking did his best to outline our understanding of these questions. If you´ve ever wondered where the universe came from and where it is going, this book is for you. This audio summary and review can help you understand the book with: A biography of the author Biographies of a few other influential physicists A chapter-by-chapter summary of the book And much more! 1.

Um olhar único sobre a mente de um dos pensadores mais extraordinários de todos os tempos! Sem dúvida o cientista mais famoso do planeta e um dos mais renomados estudiosos da Física nas últimas décadas, Stephen Hawking se tornou mundialmente famoso com o livro Uma Breve História do Tempo, transformando a maneira como interpretamos nosso lugar no universo. Sua história engloba uma batalha constante da mente contra o corpo. Quando foi diagnosticado com esclerose lateral amiotrófica (ELA) aos vinte e um anos, Hawking tinha o prognóstico de viver apenas mais dois. No entanto, decidiu não se deixar abater e hoje é o portador de ELA que sobreviveu por mais tempo na História. Este audiolivro convida você a explorar a abordagem única de Hawking sobre as grandes questões científicas da atualidade, e aponta as diferentes ideias e experiências que lhe ajudaram a formar tanto sua personalidade íntima, como sua figura pública, decodificando tudo para demonstrar como você também pode aplicar os métodos dele para melhorar todas as áreas de sua vida.

Stephen Hawking was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author, and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge. His scientific works included a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation. Hawking was the first to set out a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. He was a vigorous supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics. Hawking was a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS), a lifetime member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States. In 2002, Hawking was ranked number 25 in the BBC´s poll of the 100 Greatest Britons. He was the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge between 1979 and 2009 and achieved commercial success with works of popular science in which he discusses his own theories and cosmology in general. His book A Brief History of Time appeared on the British Sunday Times best seller list for a record-breaking 237 weeks. Hawking had a rare early-onset slow-progressing form of motor neurone disease (also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, ´´ALS´´, or Lou Gehrig´s disease) that gradually paralysed him over the decades. Even after the loss of his speech, he was still able to communicate through a speech-generating device, initially through use of a hand-held switch, and eventually by using a single cheek muscle. 1.

Who is the real Dr. Stephen Hawking? Is he a detached spectator seeking a mathematical description of a deterministic, objective reality out there? Or is he an embodied participant in the universe seeking to bring about a more desirable future? The timeline of the book is a four-city lecture tour the author organized for Hawking in the early 1990s (Portland, Eugene, Seattle, and Vancouver, BC). Hawking´s powerful meetings with students with disabilities, officially collateral events, were remarkable. However, the greater significance of these stories of the road is better appreciated in the context of the central narrative question of the book: the nature of the universe and our place/role in it. The author, a philosopher of science (Berkeley, London), engages Hawking, his graduate assistants and eventually his nurses in what starts as a critical review of the new physics of Einstein, Bohr, and Heisenberg. The question of the limits of classical science expands to questions of the limits of all supposedly objectivist, one-right-answer ideologies in biological, socio-economic, and political realms. Is everyone really selfish? Is the world objectively competitive or cooperative? In a parallel critical review of the new philosophy of science the contributions of the author´s mentors, Feyerabend, Lakatos, Kuhn, and Popper mark a parallel path to complementarity, undermining the Spectator representation of detached objective inquiry. Through his personal interactions, Hawking reveals himself as a participant, concerned with how we should live. He steers us toward a more desirable, moral future. The new post-scientific participant understanding of the universe requires a paradigm shift to a more general theory that can both explain the successes of science and yet understand them in a new way. In the more general theory, our embodied participant inquiry is understood in a new way wherein the sciences and the humanities are necessarily reunified. / 1. Language: English.
