The Original Article was published on 21 September 2017

    The Books & Arts article 'Final ascent of physics' (Nature 549, 331–332; 2017) incorrectly stated that Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory is the last book in the Theoretical Minimum series, and described it as “historical” instead of “ahistorical”. The text and title have been corrected.
