Just don't believe that string theory has already explained everything.
For a broader treatment of quantum issues in general and related to cosmology I like two books by Steven Weinberg.You might want to check out some of the reviews to get a better feel for the math in this book and if you think you can handle it.My opinion is while it is very math intensive, those interested in the science, with some math background, with benefit from reading through, even if they have to skim or skip parts with math they don't understand.On the other hand there are also other good books, depending on what subjects are of particular interest to you.You have not stated any particular area of interest. Thanks Relativity, quantum mechanics and what not is more of a side hobby of mine.As long ago as the early 19th century, the poet Keats bemoaned the washing away of the world’s beauty and mystery in the wake of natural philosophy’s reductionist insights—its tendency to “unweave a rainbow.” Two centuries later, the tentacles of science have reached far further, wrapping themselves around questions and disciplines once thought beyond the reach of scientific analysis. When it comes to the evaluation of human experience—passion to prayer, consciousness to creativity—what can science explain, and what are the limits of its explanatory powers?
What is the difference between science and scientism?
So I ask, given that the two books are written in the perspective of one of the most prominent String Theory advocates, would it be better for me to find something else to read? The books are just fine, so long as you take the string theory advocacy with a grain of salt.
There is a lot of good physics, explained well, in there -- particularly if you take the time to read the footnotes.
Are the sciences and the humanities friends or foes?
