The fabric of reality : the science of parallel universes-- and its implications by David Deutsch( Book )
45 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,639 libraries worldwide
Combining ideas from quantum theory, the theory of computation, epistemology, and the theory of evolution, David Deutsch explores the deep connections between the progress of our knowledge of the world and the process of change itself
The beginning of infinity : explanations that transform the world by David Deutsch( Book )
19 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,389 libraries worldwide
"A bold and all-embracing exploration of the nature and progress of knowledge from one of today's great thinkers. Throughout history, mankind has struggled to understand life's mysteries, from the mundane to the seemingly miraculous. In this important new book, David Deutsch, an award-winning pioneer in the field of quantum computation, argues that explanations have a fundamental place in the universe. They have unlimited scope and power to cause change, and the quest to improve them is the basic regulating principle not only of science but of all successful human endeavor. This stream of ever improving explanations has infinite reach, according to Deutsch: we are subject only to the laws of physics, and they impose no upper boundary to what we can eventually understand, control, and achieve. In his previous book, The Fabric of Reality, Deutsch describe the four deepest strands of existing knowledge-the theories of evolution, quantum physics, knowledge, and computation-arguing jointly they reveal a unified fabric of reality. In this new book, he applies that worldview to a wide range of issues and unsolved problems, from creativity and free will to the origin and future of the human species. Filled with startling new conclusions about human choice, optimism, scientific explanation, and the evolution of culture, The Beginning of Infinity is a groundbreaking book that will become a classic of its kind"--

For tens of thousands of years our ancestors understood the world through myths, and the pace of change was glacial. The rise of scientific understanding transformed the world within a few centuries. Why? In this TEDTalk, quantum physicist David Deutsch proposes a subtle answer. Deutsch's book The Fabric of Reality laid the groundwork for an all-encompassing Theory of Everything and galvanized interest in the idea of a quantum computer that could solve problems of hitherto unimaginable complexity

This DVD is a compilation of four programmes broadcast on Channel 4 using testimony from Auschwitz survivors, archive footage and historical information to piece together the story of how Nazi Germany experimented on human guinea pigs to strengthen their race. Part 1, The Deadly Experiment, looks at the early years of German Nazi's human experiments on the mentally ill - the eugenic plan. Detailed information is given of the first experiments with euthanasia on the mentally and physically disabled, the plan for mass sterilisation of Jews and Germans who were seen to be of bad genetic heritage and experiments on twins in Auschwitz. Part 2, The Wrong Stuff, looks at how Germans influenced the US in the field of aviation. Part 3, Hitler's Biological Soldiers, focuses on the biological revolution the Nazi regime hoped to achieve, the importance of the medical profession to the Nazi regime and how much of the medical profession were involved in racism and often murder - almost 5000 disabled children and around 100 000 adults were killed during the war by medical staff and. Part 4, The Good German, looks at Germany's involvement with weapons of mass destruction, beginning with Heisenberg's development of the nuclear programme and explains his failure to build the atom bomb and the development of the 'killing machine' of German medical science during Nazi rule
