The Science of Can and Can’t: A Physicist’s Journey Through the Land of Counterfactuals

Chiara Marletto

A luminous guide to how the radical new science of counterfactuals can reveal the full scope of our universe There is a vast class of properties, which science has so far neglected, that relate not only to what is true - the actual - but to what could be true- the counterfactual. This is the science of can and can’t. A pioneer in the field, Chiara Marletto explores the extraordinary promise that this revolutionary approach holds for confronting existing technological challenges, from delivering next-generation processors to designing AI. But by contemplating the possible as well as the actual, Marletto goes deeper still, showing how counterfactuals can break down barriers to knowledge and form a more complete, abundant and rewarding picture of the universe itself.
