Amazing book! Amazing scientist and philosopher
19 August 2015
Amazing book! Amazing scientist and philosopher! There are great scientists, great mystics, and great philosophers! Are there anyone who connects all three on a scholarly level? Fritjof Capra is one such person, thorough in mysticism, philosophy and his chosen Physics with extraordinary ability to draw parallels and connect all three! He takes the reader through classical physics, modern physics, and Eastern religious mysticism and philosophy and points out the interrelations between them! This is not a book a serious reader can read in a day or two; this book requires in depth study and one tends go back and read it again and again. The Zen and the Art of Motorcycle maintenance by Robert Pirsig is one such book, where the author explained the limitations of modern science and the character Phaedrus' journey of seeking to find the reality! In this book Capra takes the reader into the world of sub-atomic particles and connects it to Eastern mysticism where rationality takes the back seat. A must read for all those with scientific interest with a philosophical bend!
