Philosophy for Heroes Part II: Continuum

Physics and Evolution

About the Book

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. In this, the second of a four-book series, he takes the reader on a journey through topics on the forefront of science. 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.
