An exploration of the scientific limits of knowledge that challenges our deep-seated beliefs about our universe, our rationality, and ourselves. Many books explain what is known about the universe. This book investigates what cannot be known. Rather than exploring the amazing facts that science, mathematics, and reason have revealed to us, this work studies what science, mathematics, and reason tell us cannot be revealed. In The Outer Limits of Reason, Noson Yanofsky considers what cannot be predicted, described, or known, and what will never be understood. He discusses the limitations of computers, physics, logic, and our own thought processes. Yanofsky describes simple tasks that would take computers trillions of centuries to complete and other problems that computers can never solve; perfectly formed English sentences that make no sense; different levels of infinity; the bizarre world of the quantum; the relevance of relativity theory; the causes of chaos theory; math problems that cannot be solved by normal means; and statements that are true but cannot be proven. He explains the limitations of our intuitions about the world--our ideas about space, time, and motion, and the complex relationship between the knower and the known. Moving from the concrete to the abstract, from problems of everyday language to straightforward philosophical questions to the formalities of physics and mathematics, Yanofsky demonstrates a myriad of unsolvable problems and paradoxes. Exploring the various limitations of our knowledge, he shows that many of these limitations have a similar pattern and that by investigating these patterns, we can better understand the structure and limitations of reason itself. Yanofsky even attempts to look beyond the borders of reason to see what, if anything, is out there.

This new volume of the first-ever annotated edition of Dickens' journalism begins with examples of his work (never before collected) as a young reporter for the great Liberal paper The Morning Chronicle - reports of grand public ceremonials and rowdy elections as well as highly entertaining theatre reviews, all marked by touches of what we now think of as quintessentially Dickensian humor. Between 1837 and 1849 Dickens wrote, alongside his hugely successful novels, many articles and reviews. They were published anonymously in the famous Radical weekly The Examiner, and a generous selection of them is presented here. Whether the subject be a botched attempt to put an end to the West African slave trade, crime statistics, ghosts, panoramas, the horrors of a parish baby-farm, or outdated royal ceremonial, Dickens writes here with all the linguistic verve and passionate energy characteristic of his great novels. This is equally true of the pieces he began writing on a weekly basis for his own journal Household Words from 1850 onwards. This volume covers the first eighteen months of the paper's existence; we find Dickens celebrating such things as cheap theatres and the new detective police, satirising the follies and ineptitude of politicians, campaigning for workhouse reform and for more humane treatment of animals driven to slaughter, lambasting Pre-Raphaelite painting, and generally keeping a finger of genius on the pulse of what he called "the moving age". For the Dickens reader there are innumerable fascinating links to be made between all this remarkable journalism and the great novels; while for all those more widely interested in the social and cultural history of early Victorian England this volume offers truly a wealth of material.
