great discussion of determinism

Would you consider the audio edition of Quantum Physics and Universal Determinism to be better than the print version?

it would have better, but the narrator was not good


What was one of the most memorable moments of Quantum Physics and Universal Determinism?

when the author was explaining the relative nature of determinism; that was kind of mind-blowing.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

she was slow, did not articulate the material, and it was not clear which of the two characters was talking


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

yes, the discussion of state variables


Any additional comments?

it's more a discussion of general principles of physics and metaphysics than quantum, but kuczynski does beautifully and illuminatingly discuss the two really, really importance concepts, namely that of an interference effect and that of a state variable

a clear discussion of foundational issues

Would you consider the audio edition of Quantum Physics and Universal Determinism to be better than the print version?

slightly, but the narrator wasn't very good


What was one of the most memorable moments of Quantum Physics and Universal Determinism?

the discussion of the different kinds of determinism


What didn’t you like about Judy Rounda’s performance?

it was slow and uneven. too slow


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

yes, the part where Heisenberg's uncertainty principle was being explained in lay terms


Any additional comments?

this book is for people who really want to understand foundational issues. the usual pseudo-intellectuals who read pop-physics will be turned off, since this book does not validate their palaver and glib reasoning. it was refreshingly authoritative.
