Simplicity is the key
Centuries ago, the principle of Ockham’s razor showed that simpler answers are preferable and more often true. In Life Is Simple, scientist Johnjoe McFadden traces centuries of discoveries, taking us from a geocentric cosmos to quantum mechanics and DNA, arguing that simplicity has revealed profound answers to the greatest mysteries. This is no coincidence. From the laws that keep a ball in motion to those that govern evolution, simplicity, has shaped the universe. McFadden argues life could only have emerged by embracing maximal simplicity, making the fundamental law of the universe a form of natural selection that favors survival of the simplest. Recasting the history of science, McFadden transforms our understanding of our world.
