The Beautiful Invisible

Creativity, Imagination, and Theoretical Physics

Giovanni Vignale

  • Refreshing, entertaining view of the conceptual structure of theoretical physics
  • Focuses on the concept of the 'abstract' - the invisible and universal patterns by which we attempt to grasp the reality
  • Challenges the image of physics as dry and dusty, instead presenting it as a form of art
