The New Physics and Cosmology Dialogues with the Dalai Lama

The New Physics and Cosmology Dialogues with the Dalai Lama

What happens when the Dalai Lama meets with leading physicists and a historian? This book is the carefully edited record of the fascinating discussions at a Mind and Life conference in which five leading physicists and a historian (David Finkelstein, George Greenstein, Piet Hut, Arthur Zajonc, Anton Zeilinger, and Tu Weiming) discussed with the Dalai Lama current thought in theoretical quantum physics, in the context of Buddhist philosophy. A contribution to the science-religion interface, and a useful explanation of our basic understanding of quantum reality, couched at a level that intelligent readers without a deep involvement in science can grasp.

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

  • Very engaging
  • This is really a tremendously engaging and intelligent discussion and a great read.
  • It's an attempt to bring together: Quantum theory, Doctrines, Religion - World Religions, Religion, Buddhism - General, and Cosmology.
  • This is more about Modern Physics than Buddhism
