One of the world’s foremost physicists, Carlo Rovelli, takes us on a riveting adventure through philosophy, science, literature, and politics in his masterful book of essays, There Are Places in the World Where Rules Are Less Important Than Kindness. Following his most popular bestsellers that have brought the wonders of modern physics and Carlo’s unique worldview closer to millions, this book, written in his typically clear and lighthearted fashion, takes us through time and space: from Newton’s chymistry to Einstein’s mistakes, from psychedelic substances to the meaning of atheism, from Nabokov’s lepidopterology to Dante’s cosmology, from the history of science to the future of physics. Concise, informative and current, this book offers a stellar glimpse into our reality, from the mind of one of the most influential minds of our time.
