Publisher: D. Appleton and Company 1909
This book, while avoiding too great insistence on purely technical details, tries to make known the general results at which physicists have lately arrived, and indicates the direction and import which should be ascribed to those speculations on the constitution of matter, and the discussions on the nature of first principles, to which it has become the fashion of the present day to devote oneself.

We consider 42 questions which must be answered on the road to full enlightenment, and we attempt a first draft of these questions, on topics ranging from the cosmological constant and origin of the universe to the origin of life and consciousness.

This book teaches the art of approximation: dimensional analysis, guessing, and lying. To illustrate these techniques, we study the physics of everyday phenomena. The audience for the book includes graduates and upper-level undergraduates in physics.

A physical theory of the world is presented under the unifying principle that all of nature is laid out before us and experienced through the passage of time. The one-dimensional progression in time is opened out into a multi-dimensional flow ...
