Quantum Physics and Universal Beauty

Nobel laureate, Frank Wilczek's groundbreaking work in quantum physics was inspired by his intuition to look for a deeper order of beauty in the universe, using simple questions in an attempt to see the whole answer.

Wilczek explores how this quest has also guided the work of all great scientific thinkers in the Western world, from Plato to Einstein, and shows us just how deeply intertwined our ideas about perception, beauty and art are with our scientific understanding of the cosmos.

Frank Wilczek is an American theoretical physicist and mathematician. He is currently Professor of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
