Resumen:

The Big Questions: Tackling the Problems of Philosophy with Ideas from Mathematics, Economics, and Physics : Steven Landsburg uses concepts from mathematics, economics, and physics to address the big questions in philosophy. Beginning with the broadest philosophical issues - theories of existence, knowledge, and ethics - Landsburg then turns to a dazzling variety of specific applications. He gives us a mathematical analysis for arguments for the existence of God; explains the real meanings of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle and Godel's incompleteness theorem; and carefully dissects the meaning of social responsibility on the playground, in the marketplace, and in the voting booth. Stimulating, illuminating, and always surprising, The Big Questions reveals the relationship between the loftiest philosophical quests and our everyday lives.
