"A tour de force. This extremely original and well-written book... provides all the background needed for those unfamiliar with Buddhism to understand the tradition and the perplexing scientific claims made for it." - Richard M. Jaffe, Duke University "In Buddhism and Science, Donald Lopez fills a major gap, and he does so with his trademark rigor, concision, and elan. No serious student of science-and-religion can afford to skip this book." - Jack Miles, general editor, Norton Anthology of World Religions"
