Modern humanity desecrates creation. If we do not change, we shall vanish. Change requires a more realistic concept of ourselves and of the world around us. Top Books aims to assist in bringing about such change by incorporating the knowledge and insight of natural scientists into works of literature (novels, plays, scripts; in English or German) intended to capture the attention of a large audience.

Suchen im Park
In the first book, the novel Suchen im Park, Otto Kinne† (a biologist and ecologist) creates a fascinating portrait of the human world. On a virtual stage, the park, nine actors personify human drives, desires, experiences and insights. Oscillating between self-realization, self-control and thirst for knowledge they struggle for a better understanding of the world within and around them and for a renewal of the relations between nature, god and humanity. The blend of scientific knowledge, fantasy and vision results in a publication that outlines inspiring new thought and perspective. Main topics: instincts, voyeurism, ethics, religion, church, philosophy, art, science, limits of cognitive capacities.

In the second book, the play Anna, Jörg Friedrich (a nuclear physicist) constructs a captivating scenario unleashed by a sudden, monumental danger from outer space. Friedrich demonstrates how helpless the mightiest creature on earth can be when quick and effective co-operation between scientists, politicians and the military is required to save humanity and, in fact, most other life on this planet. Has evolution produced a life form in Homo sapiens that is capable of unparalleled scientific-technological achievement and a towering ecological dominance, but unable to avert its own annihilation?
