    Description
    Newton's Laws, a Quantum Leap, Existentialism, Ego Id and Superego, Fuzzy Logic, and Many More.

    Why did Archimedes jump from his bath and run naked through the streets shouting "Eureka!"? What is a quantum and where does it leap? Do you know your id from your ego? Does reconstruction really spell the end to Western civilisation? Does God play dice?

    This books answers all those questions and more, taking the revolutionary and perplexing ideas of Western thought and extracting their essence.

    From Greek philosophy to contemporary economics, physics and architecture, 'A Little Knowledge' covers some of the most often heard but least understood theories and explains them simply and entertainingly, including Deconstruction, Original Sin, Paradigm Shifts, "I think, therefore I am", Chaos Theory, the Oedipus Complex, the Big Bang, "Religion is the Opium of the People".
