How One Thing Leads to Another
"Critical Mass" explores the idea of whether natural laws govern human behavior and organization, similar to how physics governs motion. The author, Philip Ball, delves into the history of the idea, dating back to Thomas Hobbes in the seventeenth century, and shows how modern physics can provide insights into mass human behavior. From predicting patterns of decision-making to understanding societal customs and institutions, this fascinating book sheds light on a rational search for better ways to live.
