Praise

“Brilliant and exhilarating . . . Deutsch is so smart, and so strange, and so creative, and so inexhaustibly curious, and so vividly intellectually alive, that it is a distinct privilege to spend time in his head.”
–The New York Times Book Review 

“[Deutsch] makes the case for infinite progress and such passion, imagination, and quirky brilliance that I couldn’t help enjoying his argument. . . . [He] mounts a compelling challenge to scientific reductionism.”
–The Wall Street Journal

“Provocative and persuasive . . . Address[es] subjects from artificial intelligence to the evolution of culture and creativity.”
–The Economist  

“[Deutsch’s books] are among the most ambitious works of nonfiction I have read, in that their aim is no less than an explanation of all reality. . . . They are treatises that weave together not just physics and astronomy but biology, mathematics, computer science, political science, psychology, philosophy, aesthetics, and—most important for Deutsch—epistemology, among other fields, in fashioning a profound new view of the world and the universe.”
The New Yorker’s Book Bench

“Deutsch has an important message . . . that our destiny is to be explainers of the world around us, and explaining is the key to our mastery. . . . He writes clearly and thinks wisely. His book could help the world toward better ways of dealing with its problems.”
–Freeman Dyson, The New York Review of Books
