I have read several books written by Carlo Rovelli. His latest book is clearly benefiting from the explorations of his earlier writing. He is not only writing as a physicist with a splendid record of personal achievements, he is also a the kind of author who understands how the history of a field (in this case Quantum Mechanics) can elucidate the importance of its past discoveries for the future of physics research. But what I have admired most in Rovelli's latest gem is just this: replacing a lot of dense prose about the seperation between natural sciences and the humanities with a crystal clear language of rtelations that is essential to both. Let me be more precise. In the end of his book he refers to Thomas Nagel. Nagel became famous with the question what it is like to be a bat. More recently Nagel argued in favour of an overhaul of science, not (yet) being able to say how exactly. Nagel's argument is related to what David Chalmers has dubbed the hard (qualia)problem of consciousness: what is it like to see red? All that Rovelli does is to show how the language of quantum physics (a language of relations) could be extended to the formulation of social science and philosophy of mind problems. Even when you disagree with his point, he shows a way to converge on a shared framework! NOTE: nowhere does he claim (in fact he starkly argues against it) consciousness or any other scoial-psychological phenemonon should be understood quantum physically. I was myself very happy when Rovelli discussed (if only briefly) ideas starting from Bogdanov. I have part of my own (in part self-taught) intellectual roots in the work of cyberneticians like Norbert Wiener, Gordon Pask (not mentioned by Rovelli) and Bertalanffy. But it is Rovelli's briefness that is actually the quality that makes this work so good: the author manages to stick to relevance. Awesome:-)
