THE RIGOR OF ANGELS Borges, Heisenberg, Kant, and the Ultimate Nature of Reality

by | Read by David Glass

Biography & Memoir • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

This imaginative audiobook combines science, history, and what might be called speculative biography to create one of this season's most memorable nonfiction titles. Listeners will be helped by having some background in Kant, Borges, and Heisenberg, and in Einstein's theory of relativity. But the general line of the narrative is fairly easy to follow. Narrator David Glass is especially effective in delivering a narrative that requires careful pacing and phrasing. Should Heisenberg have fled Hitler's Germany as so many other scientists did? Would Borges have received the Nobel Prize if he hadn't served in the Perón regime? Like Borges's garden of forking paths, all possibilities exist.
