♦ Description : “This is the first book Stephen Hawking has written for the general public. He exposes, in a language accessible to all, the most recent discoveries of astrophysicists. Tracing the great theories of the cosmos from Galileo to Einstein, recounting the latest discoveries in cosmology, explaining the nature of black holes, he then proposes to meet the greatest challenge of modern science: the search for a theory to reconcile general relativity and quantum mechanics. Stephen Hawking has been fighting for over twenty years against a very serious neurological disease. Despite this handicap, he devoted his life to trying to unlock the secrets of the universe and to share his discoveries. A fascinating book.”

Author Biography

Biography

Stephen Hawking”

Stephen William Hawking – is a British theoretical physicist and cosmologist. After obtaining his B.A. at Oxford in 1962, he stayed to study astronomy. He left Oxford, with honors, for Trinity Hall where he participated in the study of theoretical astronomy and theoretical cosmology. In 1965, he married Jane Wilde (1944), a linguistics student. They had three children: Robert (1967), Lucy (1969), and Timothy (1979). The couple separated in 1991.

Almost as soon as he arrived in Cambridge in 1965, he began to develop the symptoms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Charcot’s disease). During his first two years in Cambridge, he did not stand out, but after stabilizing his illness and with the help of his doctoral tutor, William Dennis Sciama, he returned to work on his doctoral dissertation. After receiving his doctorate in 1966, Stephen became a researcher at Gonville and Caius College (Cambridge). The study of singularities, a recent physical and astronomical concept, allows the researcher to develop different theories, which will later lead him from the Big Bang to black holes. All this work will lead him to develop a fascinating cosmological model in 1983, universally known today as the Hartle-Hawking model.

Hawking’s work was done despite the worsening paralysis caused by ALS. He was a professor of mathematics at the University of Cambridge from 1980 to 2009. In 1995, Hawking married his nurse, Elaine Mason. In October 2006, he filed for divorce. Stephen Hawking is known for his contributions in the fields of cosmology and quantum gravity, especially in the context of black holes. His success is also linked to his popular science books, such as the bestseller “A Brief History of Time” (A Brief History of Time, 1988), which remained on the Sunday Times bestseller list for 237 consecutive weeks and translated into more than 35 languages.

He is a world-renowned theoretical physicist whose scientific career spans more than 40 years. His books and public appearances have made him a university celebrity. In 2007, he wrote a book, with his daughter Lucy, “George and the Secrets of the Universe”, first volume of the series “Georges” that he wrote with her.”

Description : "If Ms. Frizzle were a physics student of Stephen Hawking, she might have written THE UNIVERSE IN YOUR HAND, a wild tour through the reaches of time and space, from the interior of a proton to the Big Bang to the rough suburbs of a black hole. It's friendly, excitable, erudite, and cosmic." —Jordan Ellenberg, New York Times besteselling author of How Not To Be Wrong Quantum physics, black holes, string theory, the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, parallel universes: even if we are interested in these fundamental concepts of our world, their language is the language of math. Which means that despite our best intentions of finally grasping, say, Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, most of us are quickly brought up short by a snarl of nasty equations or an incomprehensible graph. Christophe Galfard's mission in life is to spread modern scientific ideas to the general public in entertaining ways. Using his considerable skills as a brilliant theoretical physicist and successful young adult author, The Universe in Your Hand employs the immediacy of simple, direct language to show us, not explain to us, the theories that underpin everything we know about our universe. To understand what happens to a dying star, we are asked to picture ourselves floating in space in front of it. To get acquainted with the quantum world, we are shrunk to the size of an atom and then taken on a journey. Employing everyday similes and metaphors, addressing the reader directly, and writing stories rather than equations renders these astoundingly complex ideas in an immediate and visceral way. Utterly captivating and entirely unique, The Universe in Your Hand will find its place among other classics in the field.

Description : THE NO.1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'A beautiful little book by a brilliant mind' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Effortlessly instructive, absorbing, up to the minute and - where it matters - witty' GUARDIAN The world-famous cosmologist and #1 bestselling author of A Brief History of Time leaves us with his final thoughts on the universe's biggest questions in this brilliant posthumous work. Is there a God? How did it all begin? Can we predict the future? What is inside a black hole? Is there other intelligent life in the universe? Will artificial intelligence outsmart us? How do we shape the future? Will we survive on Earth? Should we colonise space? Is time travel possible? Throughout his extraordinary career, Stephen Hawking expanded our understanding of the universe and unravelled some of its greatest mysteries. But even as his theoretical work on black holes, imaginary time and multiple histories took his mind to the furthest reaches of space, Hawking always believed that science could also be used to fix the problems on our planet. And now, as we face potentially catastrophic changes here on Earth - from climate change to dwindling natural resources to the threat of artificial super-intelligence - Stephen Hawking turns his attention to the most urgent issues for humankind. Wide-ranging, intellectually stimulating, passionately argued, and infused with his characteristic humour, Brief Answers to the Big Questions, the final book from one of the greatest minds in history, is a personal view on the challenges we face as a human race, and where we, as a planet, are heading next.

Description : In this potent book, three eminent scientists—an astrophysicist, an organic chemist, and an anthropologist—ponder and discuss some of the basic questions that have obsessed humankind through the ages, and offer thoughtful, enlightening answers in terms the layperson can easily understand. Until now, most of these questions were addressed by religion and philosophy. But science has reached a point where it, too, can voice an opinion. Beginning with the Big Bang roughly fifteen billion years ago, the authors trace the evolution of the cosmos, from the first particles, the atoms, the molecules, the development of cells, organisms, and living creatures, up to the arrival of Homo erectus and Homo sapiens. Proactive, informative, and free of technical or scientific jargon, Origins offers compelling insights into how the universe, life on Earth, and the human species began.

Description : Comment l'homme de discours façonne-t-il ses représentations du temps ? Comment, entre l'aporie ontologique de la temporalité et l'expérience sensible du vécu, donne-t-il libre cours à des modelages et à des manipulations qui lui permettent de se l'approprier ? L'ambition de ce livre est d'explorer la créativité culturelle en matière de figures et de régimes temporels dans une perspective sémiotique, à bonne distance de la philosophie et de la linguistique du temps mais s'en nourrissant, pour souligner les variétés discursives de la temporalité et contribuer ainsi au dessillement temporel. Les études sont regroupées en trois ensembles : localisation des instances et des relations génératrices de temporalité, examen des dynamiques culturelles transformatrices de l'aporie temporelle, analyse des modulations discursives du temps qui condensent des formes de vie. Ces analyses puisent dans un vaste corpus de textes qui révèlent les formes inattendues d'une temporalité à la fois irréductible et indéfiniment malléable : sont ainsi sollicités les mythes fondateurs (des mythes babyloniens aux récits bibliques et au Graal) et les œuvres littéraires (Balzac, Zola, Proust, Céline. Jaccottet, Yourcenar), mais aussi les textes théoriques (Saussure, Benveniste, Ricoeur) et la grammaire des temps (l'imparfait), les œuvres musicales (Messiaen) et l'historiographie, les arts populaires (conte, chanson), les pratiques sociales (marketing) et les expériences passionnelles (temps de la vengeance). Immense matériau rassemblé autour d'une même interrogation et appréhendé dans le même cadre théorique : celui de la sémiotique du discours, qui trouve ici un nouveau terrain de recherche et de nouvelles perspectives d'analyse au service d'une meilleure compréhension du sens.
