LOVE & CURIOSITY presents a radically new understanding of time, free will, reason, and reality: concepts at the very core of science, philosophy, religion and art. This short and brilliant book revises the history of life as we have been led to know it; it redeems natural human intuition; it restores meaning and purpose to the cosmos; and it opens the door to a new Enlightenment.
A Reader’s Report:
The cleverness, clarity, and sweep of the presentation took my breath away. This book says so much, economically, vividly, and often with a lightness of touch that is charming. The genre is the telling of a grand narrative about embodied consciousness in the Cosmos, as told by the sciences from cosmology to quantum theory and in the light of the humanities, that is, of human history and culture. The story defends the moral beauty and religious wisdom of a modern scientific humanity against the meanness and trivialities of the materialist culture that is ascendant today in the West. I am a physicist, theologian, and a professor of the philosophy of science; I have studied physics and its philosophical umbra with Erwin Schrödinger, Eugene Wigner, and Werner Heisenberg; I find myself then in strong agreement with the authors of this book. I find it far wiser in its humanistic appreciation, deeper in its understanding of human life, more interesting in its scientific dimension, closer to the historical religious roots of human experience, and better written than any of the other books in its genre, even those that I have admired and enjoyed. While unwinding the mysteries of mathematics, physics and other sciences, the authors never lose touch with the real world of family life, the natural environment, and the human yearning to transcend history.
