Abstract:

"The Soviet Union is gone, punk, retro chic, the RAF history of art, reason is a matter for investment advisors, only the old questions remain the same: How is life? How should we live? And who decides: science, religion, art, politics? David Dalek's friends - an artist, a computer programmer, a psychiatrist, a patient, a biochemist and a housewife - have the typical problems in their thirties, whose parents are still owed an authoritative answer. David, writer and journalist, as a day job, has one main problem: How does one describe a life? More specifically: How does one write a novel about a man who knew about the provisional nature of all the world and designs but the truth came as close as a human being can be? Dirac told of David's quest for the truth of Paul Dirac (1902-1984), the great unknown of modern physics. Before the eyes of the reader the story of this extraordinary scientist and human in form and develops a force that by proposing to transform the present and the world of fictional characters: a child, an exhibition, a grave stone, a book are practical answers to the Questions of everyday life, in the sea of signs, they form themselves into an allegory of life in modern times."--Cataloger translation of publisher's description.
