In this bold new book, high-tech’s best-known strategist makes a seminal contribution to the search for meaning in a secular era.
Two questions fundamental to human existence have always been the metaphysical “where do I fit in the grand scheme of things?” and the ethical “how should I behave?” Religion is no longer a source of answers for many people, and nothing has replaced it.
Moore uses his signature framework-based approach to answer these questions, taking us on an intellectual roller coaster ride through physics, chemistry, biology, the social sciences and the humanities. Along the way, he builds a metaphorical ladder that leads from the big bang to the need for ethical action in our daily lives.
Combining an extraordinary range of scholarship with an accessible and entertaining writing style, The Infinite Staircase:
What the Universe Tells Us About Life, Ethics, and Mortality provides a coherent and unified platform for a full human life.
