Description: With unassailable expertise and a proven ability to make complex theories and ideas clearly accessible to the general reader, John Barrow examines and explains every aspect of nothingness. He begins with the origins of zero in ancient India, its rocky reception in Europe, and the early abhorrence and eventual acceptance of the void by Christianity. He traces the notion of nothing through the work of writers and philosophers from the ancient Greeks to our own time. He looks at mathematics, cosmology, theology, and physics to uncover the nothing that is at the heart of most things. Finally, he discusses recent concepts of nothing, which are having profound effects on our search for the overall structure of the universe.

Illuminating the many ways in which humankind has come to understand "nothing", The Book of Nothing brilliantly belies its title.
