Collection of essays on subject. The definitive transcript of Freeman Dyson's landmark Gifford Lectures. The First Hardcover Edition in its Second Printing. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the Softcover and Reissued Editions. Published in a tiny print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Freeman Dyson's "Infinite In All Directions". The seminal basis of all his subsequent thinking and writing, the book was hailed upon publication as a great book that will stand alongside William James' "Varieties of Religious Experience" and Alfred North Whitehead's "Process And Reality", which were both also originally delivered as Gifford Lectures. "With a rare breadth of literary and historical knowledge, and with a wonderful lucidity of style, Dyson converts science from the intellectual property of specialists into a meaningful concern for everyone with a stake in our cultural future" (Bryce Christensen). An absolute "must-have" title for Freeman Dyson collectors. This title is a great book. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First Hardcover Edition/Second Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright. All other copies available online are subsequent editions. A rare copy thus. One of the greatest living scientist/thinkers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER FREEMAN DYSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
