From the Back Cover
'The Tao of Physics' is Fritjof Capra's classic exploration of the connections between Eastern mysticism and modern physics. An international bestseller, the book's central thesis, that the mystical traditions of the East constitute a coherent philosophical framework within which the most advanced Western theories of the physical world can be accommodated, has not only withstood the test of time but is ever more emphatically endoresed by ongoing experimentation and research.
Fritjof Capra addresses recent scientific developments in this, the third edition, in the form of a chapter-length afterword on 'The Future of the New Physics'.
'The parallels are indeed most striking'
SIR BERNARD LOVELL
'In the role of interpreter of the 'philosophy' of physics today, Dr Capra has few equals'
