More than one hundred of the world’s leading thinkers write about things they believe in, despite the absence of concrete proof. Eminent cultural impresario, editor, and publisher Edge, John Brockman asked a group of leading scientists and thinkers to answer the question: What do you believe to be true even though you cannot prove it? This book brings together the very best answers from the most distinguished contributors.
