Chaos: A Very Short Introduction

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Leonard Smith

Narrated By: Michael Page

Date: July 2021

Duration: 5 hours 6 minutes

Summary:

Chaos exists in systems all around us. Even the simplest system of cause and effect can be subject to chaos, denying us accurate predictions of its behavior, and sometimes giving rise to astonishing structures of large-scale order. Our growing understanding of Chaos Theory is having fascinating applications in the real world-from technology to global warming, politics, human behavior, and even gambling on the stock market.

Leonard Smith shows that we all have an intuitive understanding of chaotic systems. He uses accessible math and physics (replacing complex equations with simple examples like pendulums, railway lines, and tossing coins) to explain the theory, and points to numerous examples in philosophy and literature (Edgar Allen Poe, Chang-Tzu, Arthur Conan Doyle) that illuminate the problems. The beauty of fractal patterns and their relation to chaos, as well as the history of chaos, and its uses in the real world and implications for the philosophy of science are all discussed in this Very Short Introduction.
