Summary:
Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united in a single quantum theory of gravity? Two of the world's most famous physicists--Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose--disagree on this. Here they explain their positions in a work based on six lectures with a final debate, all originally presented at the Isaac Newton  Read more...

Abstract:

Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united in a single quantum theory of gravity? Two of the world's most famous physicists--Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose--disagree on this. Here they explain their positions in a work based on six lectures with a final debate, all originally presented at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge.--From publisher description.
