The Tao of Physics - An Exploration of the Parallels between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism

Fritjof Capra

"Science does not need mysticism and mysticism does not need science, but man needs both." -Fritjof Capra, Ph.D. Their paths to the truth could not be more different-but the amazing thing is that, in their own ways, the mystics and the scientists are discovering the same truths about our world. In non-technical language, with no complex mathematics or formulae, this thought-provoking program explores 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, we gain a clear and fascinating picture of how such seemingly disparate areas of thought are ultimately quests for the same kind of understanding.
