A Tear at the Edge of Creation
Marcelo Gleiser, Appleton Professor of Natural Philosophy, Professor of Physics and Astronomy

Readers interested in exploring the big questions in a book written for a general audience might also like my book, A Tear at the Edge of Creation. The book deals with the search for unified theories in the sciences and its relation with religion. It discusses the origin of the universe, the origin of matter and life on Earth, and the possibility of life elsewhere in the universe, making the case for the importance of our own planet.
