The Frontiers Collection

Because the Best View is Without Limits 

The scientific endeavor is all about discovering and understanding new and exciting facets of the world we live in. Although much of today's science has become fairly routine and is driven largely by technological and commercial forces, there is still - and will always remain - a plethora of unanswered questions at the edges of the realm which we claim to understand. It is to these exciting 'Frontier' topics (and also their philosophical implications) that this new book series is dedicated.
Although most active scientists do not work directly in such fields, many, if not most, retain an interest in learning about fundamental new ideas in such forefront research. It is for this large audience of interested researchers, bread-and-butter industry scientists, and hobby scientists that this series is conceived. Thus, in contrast to typical research monographs, the Frontiers Collection strives to present its topics in a manner accessible to scientifically literate non-specialists. The authors aim is to encourage active scientists to ponder over fundamental and perhaps controversial issues beyond their own speciality. Extending from quantum physics and relativity to entropy, time and conciousness, the Frontiers Collection will inspire readers to push back the frontiers of their own knowledge.
