After Physics" presents ambitious new essays about some of the deepest questions at the foundations of physics, by the physicist and philosopher David Albert. The book s title alludes to the close connections between physics and metaphysics, much in evidence throughout these essays. It also alludes to the work of imagining what it would be like for the project of physical science considered as an investigation into the fundamental laws of nature to be complete. Albert argues that the difference between the past and the future traditionally regarded as a matter for metaphysical or conceptual or linguistic or phenomenological analysis can be understood as a mechanical phenomenon of nature. In another essay he contends that all versions of quantum mechanics that are compatible with the special theory of relativity make it impossible, even in principle, to present the entirety of what can be said about the world as a narrative sequence of befores and afters. Any sensible and realistic way of solving the quantum-mechanical measurement problem, Albert claims in yet another essay, is ultimately going to force us to think of particles and fields, and even the very space of the standard scientific conception of the world, as approximate and emergent. Novel discussions of the problem of deriving principled limits on what can be known, measured, or communicated from our fundamental physical theories, along with a sweeping critique of the main attempts at making sense of probabilities in Many-Worlds interpretations of quantum mechanics, round out the collection."

Lands of extremes, contrasts, metaphor and myth, deserts cover nearly a third of our planet's land area and are home to more than half a billion people. The desert as an idea has long captured the Western imagination, but too often in ways that fail to grasp the true scope and diversity of these spaces and the realities of the lives of people for whom arid lands are home. For the outsider, stories of the desert are about the exotic, about adventures into hostile territory. Few of us consider the perspectives of those who make their livelihoods in the desert each day. This book attempts to bridge the gaps, both scientific and cultural, between perception and reality, while celebrating the fascination, excitement and diversity of arid lands and their inhabitants. Though generally seen as arid and infertile, deserts have been the birthplaces of critical evolutionary adaptations, civilizations, ideologies and agricultural and social progress. Deserts play active roles in the continued evolution of our climate and societies, demanding that we think seriously about these barren lands and their future. Does the botanical and microbial diversity of arid lands provide keys to food supply, new pharmaceuticals and our planet s carbon budget? Would the city of Phoenix not exist if the advice of John Wesley Powell had been heeded? What can we learn from the writing of a female cross-dressing drug addict who drowned in the Sahara? And who was Hi Jolly and what were 'little fellah bums'? From the Gobi to the Sonora, via the Sahel and the Australian outback, The Desert: Lands of Lost Borders relates the tales, truths, folklore and facts of arid lands in an analysis that is at once informative and surprising and, during the United Nations Decade for Deserts and the Fight Against Desertification, extremely timely.
