We’re not a political party, nor are we economists with quick answers. We’re just a publishing house that notices the discrepancies between the way things are and the way they could be.

András Patkós: Az elbűvölt fizikus

The book incorporates lectures and presentations previously published in various scientific journals. These including writings about physical phenomena such as vacuum, entropy, elemental interactions, and hidden symmetries. András Patkós is a renowned scholar in particle physics and cosmology, a professor and academic, skilled at communicating and educating widely on these topics. Through both his own discoveries and the constantly evolving ways we understand the world around us, his book helps the reader comprehend that physics is the realm of intellectual miracles. Without physics, we would be blind and could not understand how to make our way in the material world - even with a screwdriver. From the chapter titles, it’s clear this won’t be easy reading, and at least some knowledge of physics is necessary. Until recently, no one would have believed that the discoveries of modern physics, such as the theory of relativity and quantum physics, would have serious practical significance and become the foundations of our modern economy. In the last part of the book, the author discusses the meaning of research, the appreciation of teachers, and the future of universities in the face of today’s education policies. The book is not an easy read – it’s an intellectual delicacy, one that requires at least some involvement in basic science.
