Is the universe fine-tuned for intelligent life? This is emerging as one of the most important questions of modern science. The more researchers analyze the fundamental laws of physics, and the characteristics of the universe about us, the more perplexing these questions become. For additional discussion, see Fine-tuned on this site, or, for a longer overview treatment, see A Fortunate Universe: Life in a Finely Tuned Cosmos [Lewis2016] and an accompanying technical paper by Barnes [Barnes2013].

Lewis and Barnes are hardly alone in observing that the universe appears fine-tuned for life and, at the least, that this question deserves further analysis. Here is a partial bibliography of recent research on this topic:
