Being a hero means standing up to false heroes. To gain this ability, we need to have a good grasp of the nature of the universe and to be able to understand our own minds. This book introduces you to the most current and most advanced topics in science. It is easy to read, stays away from complicated mathematical details, and introduces concepts from the ground up.
Becoming a hero requires gaining an understanding of what the greatest minds of history have pondered. Philosophy for Heroes summarizes their wisdom and connects it with the modern world.
What would lead a computer scientist and project manager to turn to philosophy for answers? Clemens Lode has a passion for solving problems by applying ideas from nature. In his examination into what could give lifeless machines a "heart," he found that the answer requires a holistic examination of the world.
With his book series Philosophy for Heroes, Lode bridges the gap between science, philosophy, psychology, and ultimately leadership. Through addressing these topics and challenging popular myths, we can lay the groundwork for becoming modern-day heroes.
In this, the second book in a four-part series, he explores questions like: What is the quantum theory and how can we interpret it? How did the universe come out of "nothingness" and how did life develop from non-living matter? What is the origin of our own creativity?
Through addressing these questions and challenging popular myths, we can lay the groundwork for becoming modern-day heroes.
