Klimawandel, Finanzkrise oder mogliche Nebenwirkungen von Medikamenten - es scheint in unserer modernen Zeit immer schwieriger zu werden, den Durchblick zu behalten, Zusammenhange zu verstehen oder Risiken einschatzen zu konnen. Wilfried H. Lindenzweig macht uns Mut: Vieles ist nicht so kompliziert, wie von uns befurchtet - schon gar nicht, wenn es uns jemand wie Lindenzweig erklart. Lesen und dann mitreden konnen, hei?t additionally die Devise.

Ein Buch fur alle, die ihre Neugier bewahrt haben und bereit sind, alles zu hinterfragen

Hervorzuheben sind Lindenzweigs spannende Exkurse zur Entwicklung der Wissenschaften durch die Jahrhunderte. Von Albert Einstein stammt diese Erkenntnis: >Probleme kann guy niemals mit derselben Denkweise losen, durch die sie entstanden sind< . Wer additionally Gewalt mit Gewalt oder Schulden mit weiteren Schulden zu bezwingen versucht, ist demnach auf dem Holzweg. Naturlich soll auch diese those uberpruft werden.
Dass Lindenzweig in seinen naturwissenschaftlichen Exkursen speedy ohne Formeln auskommt, beweist, dass niemand Physik oder Chemie studiert haben muss, um ein Thema zu verstehen. Er spricht additionally uns alle als Leser an. Zwei Dinge sollten wir allerdings mitbringen: Neugier auf die Welt und ihre gro?en Fragen - und die Bereitschaft, vielleicht liebgewonnene Standpunkte infrage zu stellen.
