Brian Cox - The Quantum Universe: Everything that Can Happen WIll Happen (Jeff Forshaw)

Kaherine Hayles. Harris also reminds us Harris Both are judged at times by their degree of verisimilitude to what we regard as the real world. Both literary and scientific fictions can be esthetically pleasing; both can be disturbing. Bohnenkamp 20 Contrary to the general opinion, literary texts do more than thematize scientific theories.

Davies and J. Brown, eds. Kindle edition. This claim is justified especially when we consider how postmodern fictions and theories are uncannily similar to quantum theories in positing an ontological vision of the world with permeable boundaries, inbuilt openness, and multifarious relations.

In fact, the same definition applies verbatim for postmodern fictions. Underlying the polysemic nature of postmodern narratives is the same vision: a lively universe in flux, open to myriad possibilities and ambiguous symbolic meanings that seem akin to the descrip- tions of the quantum processes.

As indicated by the converging lines between postmodern and quantum theories, the prevailing link between quantum physics and literary discourses is, in fact, the hermeneutic nature of knowledge production. It is true that the physicist must verify the fictive aspect of reality, but the idea of objective facts versus subjective interpretations is no longer tenable.

It is the very crossroads where the two meet the universe halfway. Therefore, the conceptual affinities between literary and scientific discourses, the complexity of their cross-currents, and a spectrum of issues that underwrites the link between quantum theories and literary texts, constitute an important body of interdisiciplinary work in the humanities.

Among the most compelling theoretical discussions of physics and literature are The Cosmic Web and Chaos and Order by N. Katherine Hayles. Rather than arguing about whether humanists use physics models rightly or wrongly, Hayles opines that we should transgress the anxiety of influence and view both fields in terms of their mutual effect on each other: the literature is an imaginative response to complexities and ambiguities that are implicit in the models but that are often not explicitly recognized.

Thus a comprehensive picture of the field concept is more likely to emerge from the literature and from science viewed together than from either one alone. In this sense the literature is as much an influence on the scientific models as the models are on the literature, for both affect our understanding of what the field concept means in its totality. Despite the conceptual difficulties, these studies foreground the efficacy of metaphoric dis- course employed by theoretical physicists to capture the complexities posed by the subatomic world.

The dialogue between humanists and physicists, however, has not always been an easy one, and the tension becomes even more pronounced when literary critics address questions and concepts similar to the ones posed in quantum physics. When seen, however, from the humanities vantage, the literary resonances of quantum meta- phors inevitably attract many literary critics like an electron in the vicinity of a magnet.

In conclusion, I would state that when faced with interpreting a physical reality whose essential ontology remains elusive, both physicists and humanists ask the same question of how to make this ontology meaningful for the general cultural imaginary. Hence, even though still viewed with suspicion by physicists, the efforts of humanities scholars to transgress disciplinary boundaries have become important in the mediation of scientific knowledge.

As an index of the current developments, interdisciplinary work on the relations between literary studies and scientific exploration sheds light on how productive literary and scientific interplays and collaborations can be.

They go on to describe electron orbitals, the mechanics of electronic devices, quantum electrodynamics, virtual particles in a vacuum and more with the same mix of heavy technical arguments, a little maths though nowhere near as much as a physics textbook and a lot of Feynman-style diagrams and logic.

The reason I think I would have benefited so much is that this book explains much more than an certainly my undergraduate course does.

Not explaining why quantum physics does what it does - no one can do that. But explaining the powerful logic behind the science, laying the groundwork for the undergraduate to then be able to do the fancy maths and fling Hamiltonians around and such.

It is very powerful in this respect and I would urge anyone about to start a physics degree or in the early stages of one to read it. I would also recommend it for someone who is just really interested in physics and is prepared to put a lot of work into reading it, probably revisiting some pages several times to get what Cox and Forshaw have in mind - because they don't ease up very often.
