For anyone interested in the relationship between science and religion, this book provides over 120 parallels to contemplate, each taken from the writings of modern physicists and Eastern mystics. The words of Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg, Schrodinger, and other founders of modern physics are matched with remarkably similar quotes from Buddha, Shankara, Chuang Tzu, and other Eastern mystics. In what ways are scientific and spiritual approaches to understanding reality similar? This book shows you the surprising parallel statements of the physicists and mystics -- grouped into a variety of themes -- and lets you decide for yourself. Regardless of whether you think the parallels are just superficial similarities, or hints at a profound unity behind physical and spiritual aspects of reality, these quotes will stimulate deeper insight into the controversial relationship between science and religion.Was this review helpful?
