The Infinite Tortoise

Thought experiments allow philosophy and science to question ideas in hypothetical scenarios and obscure realities; huge leaps in thought have then gone on to inform practical experimentation and research. An intriguing look at 40 of history's greatest thought experiments, from Zeno's paradox of Achilles and the Tortoise c.420 BC, to philosophical zombies exploring consciousness in 1996. Descartes' evil genius in 1641, Schrodinger's Cat in 1935 and Turing's imitation game of 1950 are just some of the experiments that are well-known by name but little understood. Profiling each problem and discussing its history and impact this mind-bending and playful history let's you think through each problem for yourself.

Hardback, 8" x 5 ", 183 pages, 7 black and white diagrams.
