Overview

Einstein and Buddha: The Parallel Sayings shows how modern scientific and ancient Eastern thought reveal the same truths. These parallels touch on the essential nature of energy and matter, the relationship between subject and object, and the limits of language in understanding and describing reality. Science has many times been called the “new religion.” Focusing on the importance of science and religion in modern society, Einstein and Buddha shows how the future of humankind may well depend upon the relationship between the two. Provocative, stimulating, and insightful throughout, the book communicates the deep common ground of scientific and spiritual truth between Western thought and Eastern religion.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Jesus and Buddha: The Parallel Sayings has sold more than 30,000 copies for Ulysses Press, which follows up with Thomas J. McFarlane's Einstein and Buddha: The Parallel Sayings. While the sayings offer some striking convergences between scientific reflections and various Eastern writers' statements on knowledge, impermanence, existence and the universe, their brevity and diversity make for some shallowness of thought. "Einstein" here represents not just Albert Einstein, but Werner Heisenberg, Max Planck, Niels Bohr, Richard Feynman and David Bohm a scientific menagerie so various that Feynman in particular would have gotten a hearty chuckle from their being lumped together. And "Buddha" is not merely Buddha, or even Buddhist writers, but a hodgepodge of Buddhist, Vedic, Taoist and Confucianist scriptures. Religion and science is such a rich topic that it deserves more careful attention than is possible in this format. Dec.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
