5.0 out of 5 stars The Tao of Physics, 18 Jun. 2009
This review is from: The Tao of Physics (Flamingo) (Paperback)
The Tao of Physics is a book that can be read by anyone and I think that there is something to be learnt by everyone who reads it. The book looks at the parallels between eastern mysticism and quantum physics. Capra very articulately describes the fine veil between the two and how they are inter-related. Although in his thesis he goes into great scientific detail about theories like Heisenburg's uncertainty principle, Einstein's special theory of relativity and the workings of how at the time of publishing the quantum scientific world percieved the mechanistic workings of particles, it is ultimately facinating. Capra's spiritual insight into eastern mysticism is very sensitively but thouroughly tied in, and you journey through fom Hinduism to Zen.

There are so many quotes, so many wise insights that I think anyone who has an interest in philosophy, science or ever just had an inquisitive mind will enjoy reading this book.

My most valued text was the paragraph that starts, 'Any path is only a path...'
