New Religious Movements and the Spiritualization of Knowledge

Mysticism and Physics

700. Capra Fritjof. The Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism. 2d ed. Boulder, Colo.: Shambhala, 1983.

Capra first discusses modern physics, then goes on to describe Hindu, Buddhist, Chinese, Taoist, and Zen mysticism, and finally discusses parallels between these two approaches to reality. Intended for the general reader, the book has enjoyed popular success. Some experts on both sides have found the work simplistic, albeit imaginatively constructed. The description of modern physics is accessible to the layperson. Good bibliography. Index.

701. Capra Fritjof. The Turning Point: Science, Society, and the Rising Culture. New York: Simon and Schuster, 1982.

Claims that environmental, economic, and political problems are facets of a "crisis of perception" that derives from trying to apply outdated Cartesian concepts to a world that is interconnected in the way that modern physics describes for subatomic particles. Argues for a new holistic worldview that author sees beginning in medicine and healing, the integration of Eastern and Western psychologies, and economics and technology. This new paradigm is discussed at length. For the general reader. Notes, bibliography, and index.

702. Gardner Martin. "Quantum Theory and Quack Theory." New York Review of Books, 17 May 1979, pp. 39-41.

Gardner discusses the questionable use of quantum
