Description of The Big Picture by Sean Carroll ePub
“The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself” is a great book which is well written and delightful to read. Sean Carroll is the author of this awesome book. Sean Carroll is a successful theoretical physicist, skilled panderer of philosophical questions and gifted communicator of science. This is a magnificent book written by an erudite physicist, an astute observer and a humane and thoughtful human being. Professor Carroll beautifully summarizes the current state of thinking in physics and cosmology, referencing major philosophical strands, and covering epistemology, ontology, Entropy, evolution, complexity, the origin of life, Consciousness, Reason, Morality and ethics. There are six parts to this book: Cosmos, Understanding, Essence, Complexity, Thinking and Caring. The author is an atheist, though raised a Christian and he has coined a phrase for his way of thinking Poetic Naturalism. Prof. Carroll maintains a steadfast commitment to naturalism which he defines as follows: “There is only one world, the natural world, exhibiting patterns we call the ‘laws of nature,’ and which is discoverable by the methods of science and empirical investigation.
There is no separate realm of the supernatural, spiritual, or divine nor is there any cosmic teleology or transcendent purpose inherent in the nature of the universe or in human life. He tackles the difficult problems of origins, consciousness, body & soul and morality head-on and to his great credit discusses all sides fairly. Maintaining his presupposition naturalistic commitments, he continues with this summary “‘Life’ and ‘consciousness’ do not denote essences distinct from matter, they are ways of talking about phenomena that emerge from the interplay of extraordinarily complex systems. Purpose and meaning in life arise through fundamentally human acts of creation, rather than being derived from anything outside ourselves. Naturalism is a philosophy of unity and patterns describing all of reality as a seamless web.
