A Fortunate Universe

“A Fortunate Universe: Life in a finely-tuned cosmos” will be published by Cambridge University Press in mid-2016. This book, by Geraint F. Lewis and Luke A. Barnes, will discuss the question of whether the laws of the Universe are fine-tuned for the appearance of complex life, and ask what this means for the place of us humans in such a cosmos.

As well as providing updates on the preparation of the book, with insights in writing a scientific book, we’ll also discuss various issues, be they scientific, philosophical, theological, or comical, in relation to the topic of fine-tuning.
