Overview

Physicist Kim Sangwook introduces concepts from the "language" of physics to help the public read and understand the relationship between human lives and the universe.

Book Intro

From light, time and space, to atoms and electrons, and from the principles of least resistance, chaos, entropy, and quantum mechanics to simple harmonic oscillation, this book introduces various concepts from the field of physics. It guides the reader toward a new perspective on existence, life, death, relationships with others and beliefs about the universe thought the medium of "physics." The way a physicist views the world, as consisting of atoms, is similar to how a philosopher reads the epigrams of oriental philosophy. Where do the elements that make up existence begin? How should one contemplate death? What is the difference between myself and others? While the book does not offer a scientific answer to such questions, it offers a new perspective that only a physicist can introduce.

About the Author

Kim Sangwook



Kim Sangwook was born in Seoul in 1970. After deciding to become a quantum physicist in high school, he moved on to KAIST where he studied physics as an undergraduate and graduate student and obtained his Ph.D, with his thesis entitled "Relativistic chaos and quantum localization of classically chaotic systems." He has worked at POSTECH, KAIST, the Max Planc Institute, Seoul National University and Pusan National University, and he has been working as a physics professor at Kyung Hee University since 2018. He is very interested in the meeting of classic and quantum mechanics and the physics involved.
