The Things That Nobody Knows
501 Mysteries of Life, the Universe, and EverythingBook - 2012
In The Things that Nobody Knows, William Hartston takes us on a guided tour of 501 gaps in our knowledge of cosmology, mathematics, animal behaviour, medical science, music, art, language and literature. As well as explaining our ignorance of the answers to such questions as 'What is Dark Energy?', 'Is colour a product of the mind?', 'Was there ever a real Pope Joan?' and 'Who destroyed the nose of the sphinx?', he considers the likelihood of light being shed on these mysteries in the future. -- Cover [p.4].
