    Description

    The Tao of Physics is a book on modern physics and Eastern mysticism by Fritjof Capra.

    Summary of the Book

    Dr. Capra tries to combine two worlds. One of these is deeply rooted in logic and centuries, if not millennia, of research. The other is rooted in the beliefs of men, and is sustained by the stories men passed on from generation to generation. Physics has tried to explain everything that goes on around us with a rational vein but mysticism has often been its strongest impediment. Dr. Capra looks to Eastern mysticism with apprehension, and explains how a trip to India and a chance meeting with Rabindranath Tagore made him change his mind. He explains that Eastern mysticism may also have some answers to physics’ unsolved problems. He looks at Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism to show their parallels with the latest discoveries on the cyclotron. He shows how although physics and mysticism may not need each other, humans may yet need both to survive.

    About Fritjof Capra

    Fritjof Capra is an Austrian-American physicist, a founding director of the Center for Ecoliteracy in Berkeley, California, and a member of the faculty of Schumacher College.

    Capra studied at the University of Vienna, earning his Ph.D. in theoretical physics. He has also worked at the University of California, Santa Cruz, the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, Imperial College, London, and the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. A polyglot, Dr. Capra speaks German, English, French and Italian. He has also written The Turning Point, Uncommon Wisdom, The Web of Life, and The Hidden Connections.

    The Tao of Physics

    One of the best books to understand the linkage between Science and God; and God with Spirituality. The book contains detailed discussion on the physical basis of spirituality; the process of transformation from material to non-material. Important scientific theories have been discussed in lay mans language to provide deep insight into the subject.

    This book is a must read who is interested in the subject.

    Amazing mix of science, mysticism and philosophy

    This book is a real gem. It beautifully compares the eastern philosophy and mysticism to western modern physics. It is so amazing to get to know that today's modern science is converging to the principles established by the very ancient eastern philosophers. A must read for scientists, philosophers and believers.

    Marriage of eastern mysticism with modern physics

    Nataraj dancing is like electrons of atoms dancing in the space, yin yang is the symbol of good and bad just like electron has a positive and a negative charge,shivas roop parallels with neutron's neutrality. How shiva's thandav is synonymous with the creation of big bang at the start of the universe which signifies creation and destruction of the universe.
    How bhudha's deep consciousness and meditation could see the hidden structures of the universe which is the quantum worlds.

    Excellent

    A great book, worth reading many times over.

    There's a huge amount of material out there that tries to draw parallels between science and mysticism. Unfortunately, most of that material is pseduo-mystical as well as pseduo-scientific.

    This book is genuine science, genuine mysticism. Very gripping.

    Book Review

    Tao:The absolute principle underlying the universe, combining within itself
    the principles of yin and yang and signifying the way, or code of behaviour,
    that is in harmony with the natural order.

    The title of the book aptly describes what the book is all about, its about the intermingling of western science and eastern mysticism. The book deals with how physics has had an important part in laying the foundation of religion and mysticism in general and how it has developed through the ages.Fr...

    The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra

    Fritjof Capra's exploration of the parallels between modern physics and Eastern mysticism is written in a style which makes it is easy for even a layman to understand the complex theories of modern physics as also the lofty philosophies of the East. Reading this book has been an enjoyable experience.

    Unnecessary book, subtracting from sum of human knowledge

    I was enraged as well as saddened to read this unabashed bastardization of modern science from someone who himself claims to be a scientist and, unfortunately, has the credentials to prove that he indeed is.
    The first two parts of this book are completely unrelated, making the third part- and hence the book itself- redundant. Moreover, the main text of this book hasn't been revised even once in nearly three decades of its publication. As a result this book contains thirty year old theories, m...
