Summer Reading 2019: The Tao of Physics

Here's why Enver suggests The Tao of Physics...

What if I told you that modern physics and the spiritual traditions of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism came to the same conclusion about the nature of the universe? This book explains why that is the case.

About the book

The Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism
By Fritjof Capra

Science does not need mysticism and mysticism does not need science, but man needs them both." These are the words of Fritjof Capra, a theoretical physicist, systems theorist, writer, and lecturer. Capra uses non-technical language, with no complex mathematics of formulae, to explore the main concepts and theories of modern physics, the revelations coming from particle accelerators and laboratories - and compares them with the ancient tenets of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism. In the process, the reader gains a clear and fascinating picture of how such seemingly disparate areas of thought are ultimately quests for the same kind of understanding. - Audible
