Includes a new afterword on the discovery of the Higgs Boson. The search for universal truth, the underlying "oneness" connecting all things, has been the abiding obsession of philosophers and scientists throughout history. In Tear at the Edge of Creation, award-winning physicist Marcelo Gleiser argues that this quest for a Theoory of Everything is fundamentally misguided. Imbalance, asymmetry and imperfection are the engines of creation, not order.
