It would scarcely be possible, without Hands’s own overarching perspective, to grasp the central reality of contemporary science…an irresoluble tension between the awesome achievement of science in the recent past and the compelling signs that for all that we might learn there is, after all, more than we can know. COSMOSAPIENS is, as Cambridge Professor of Philosophy Tim Crane has commented, ‘a truly remarkable work’ – as indeed it is – dispassionate, even-handed and, informed by the author’s extensive correspondence with more than sixty specialists across the entire range of scientific disciplines, immensely persuasive.
