Quantum physics occupies a fascinating place at the cutting edge of modern scientific research, allowing today’s scientists to plumb new depths when it comes to matter and motion. Ben Gliniecki looks at a new book, Quantum Social Science, which argues that applying the logic of quantum theory to social systems can take our understanding of human society to a whole new level. Without realising it, these scientists are following in the footsteps of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, who developed the ideas of dialectical materialism.
