    review The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism 103 The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern MysticismDon't look to Capra for a highly disciplined discourse on particle physics or the nature of cosmology Nor is this book a deep exploration of Taoism or other Eastern Religious Philosophy Rather it is a fascinating mental adventure showing the ways the two schools of thought often developed in parallel and came to similar conclusions from very different beginning points The author's own words in the epilogue sum it up nicely Science does not need mysticism and mysticism does not n

    review The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism 103 The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern MysticismI have had this book in my possession off and on over the years ever since I worked for the author Fritjof Capra when I lived in Berkeley in the late 70s I only knew then that he was a physicist not realizing that there was such a thing as uantum physics which I was not introduced to until 2000 Fritjof was a really interesting person that is what I knew about him which wasn’t much since I was only his housekeeper Cleaning homes was how I got through collegeSeeing his home I realized that I got the job because I advertised myself as being meticulous Fritjof was meticulous And I l

    review The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism 103 The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern MysticismIt is widely recognized at least by those outside of science that scientists are notorious bunglers when it comes to philosophical matters So it is not surprising though hardly excusable that Capra's book displays a level of incompetence that should be immediately obvious to anyone with even a cursory background in logic or philosophy As a matter of fact it would be surprising if such an unualified admirer of Taoism whose writings Capra notes approvingly are full of passages reflecting the Taoist's contempt of reasoning p 113 should display much in the way of sound reasoning While I was not especially sy

    review The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism 103 The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern MysticismOk so I have a small confession to make I think I might be overrating books Or at least it looks like it from other reviews I recently read I usually read them after rating the books myself but sometimes I go the other way around Today is one of those days I must say I find it harder to criticize a bad non–fiction book than a bad novel And that could be because first of all with non–fiction books it's hardly a matter of writing style unless it's a really good book or a really bad one and second of all I'm easily amazed by the knowledge I acuire on things I had no previous idea of Having said that I really liked this book As the book title itself states it's about drawing parallels between modern physics and eastern beliefs Let me just say there's actually a lot to talk about than I would have imagined I

    review The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism 103 The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern MysticismWell this is my first one star on good reads that means this book was even worse than the Third Hunger Games bookThe main reason for the one star is just my complete disappointment in this book I went in to reading 'The Tao fo Physics' expecting to find something that correlated elements of uantum mechanics to the insights of Eastern mysticism and philosophy which I feel was a reasonable expectation However what I found was an author who not only was dull but founded his 'correlations' on the beliefs of famous physicists and philosophers For a good 13 of the book you the reader are submitted to a uote by Einstein or insert another well known physicist name here and then a uote by the Buddha

    review The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism 103 The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern MysticismEastern philosophy is not a singular concept it consists of many schools of thought; some of which the author has conveniently cherry picked and force fit to draw parallels with uantum PhysicsTruth be told the book neither has literary merit nor does it present any groundbreakingly profound idea There is a pretence of the latter but anyone with some familiarity with the field of philosophy will see right through it The only merit in the book if one is to force himself to find one is to see how an author can paraphrase a simple idea again and again hiding it under the guise of different metaphors and clothing it in different phrases and make a whole book out of it To see this one would have suspend the idea that the author's intent matters at all and and then appreciate the fact that Fritjof Capra has produced a tribute to ueneau's Exercises in Style albeit accidentally As a matter

    review The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism 103 The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern MysticismA book that fundamentally changed the way I felt and thought deep down inside at a time of my life when I needed some sort of metaphysical pathWhen you strip away the mathematics from the concepts of uantum mechanics and strong theory etc you get a bewildering array of thought provking images that conjure up those posed by the best koans that Zen has to offer Eastern mysticism meets modern physicsYou will understand that everything is connected

    review The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism 103 The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern MysticismI bought this book some 7 years ago when I was fifteen At the time I was getting increasingly interested in physics and at the same time Buddhism Unfortunately I also read another book around this time called 'What The Bleep Do We Know' which turned out to be nothing but 'uantum woo' that is pretending that uantum mechanics is all kinds of things that

    review The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism 103 The Tao of Physics An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern MysticismThis book would have been better called The Buddha of Physics or something like that Throughout the whole book there is hardly a single reference to taoism and certainly no understanding of taoism and its relation to other asian religionsThe great majority of the spiritualreligious references in this book are from Indian Buddhism and Hinduism A mild smattering of zen Hardly any Chinese BuddhismI found this book incredibly boring I think I actually started skimming towards the end which for me before I had a daughter was pretty extreme I think I found one interesting idea in this whole book the physics concept of bootstrapping which took up no than one or two sentences and a footnoteIf you are really interested in learning how taoism or
