Abstract
"Stellen sie sich vor, über Nacht, als alles schlief, sei unbemerkt alles im Universum doppelt so groß geworden. Könnte man feststellen, daß dies geschehen ist?", "Wie überprüft man die Hypothese 'Alle Raben sind schwarz?`". Mit solchen Fragestellungen schafft es Autor Poundstone die grauen Zellen seiner Leser anzuregen und sie zum Nachdenken über scheinbare und reale Paradoxien bringen. Dabei werden dem Leser köstliche Anekdoten und Probleme aus allen Bereichen des Lebens und der Philosophie vorgeführt. Wem "Gödel, Escher, Bach" gefallen hat, wird an diesem Werk seine wahre Freude haben. Wem "GEB" zu formellastig war, findet hier ein Buch, daß fast ohne Formeln auskommt, und auch für wissenschaftliche Laien sehr gut und flüssig lesbar ist. Inbesondere der lockere und ungezwungene Humor machen dieses Buch sehr kurzweilig. Es kommt selten vor, daß man Sachbücher verschlingt, wie einen guten Krimi, aber dieses Buch ist nur sehr schwer aus der Hand zu legen, insbesondere für den günstigen Preis der Taschenbuchausgabe.
