Summary

A Many-Colored Glass does not attempt to bring together all of the celebrated physicist's thoughts on science and technology into a unified theory. The emphasis is, instead, on the myriad ways in which the universe presents itself to us-and how, as observers and participants in its processes, we respond to it. Book jacket.
