Taoism

The Tao of Physics is Fritj of Capra s classic exploration of the connections between Eastern mysticism and modem 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 lime but is ever more emphatically endorsed by ongoing experimentation and research.


Fritj of 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.
