UNCOMMON WISHDOM

 638.00

Fusing modern science and Eastern mysticism, Fritjof Capra took the intellectual world by storm with the publication of his hugely influential The Tao of Physics,

“Now, in Uncommon Wisdom, he charts the cultural, scientific and philosophical landmarks behind that intellectual

odyssey through his conversations with some quite remarkable people: with Werner Heisenberg he explodes the

myths of atomic physics, and searches for spiritual freedom alongside J. Krishnamurti; he pinpoints the nature of mental illness with R. D. Laing, and of ecological principles with E. F Schumacher and Hazel Henderson, while Indira Gandhi stimulates his understanding of feminism

in traditional Indian society. All offer rich insight into the intellectual and artistic, environment which helped shape one of this century’s most fascinating world views of political, economic

and social harmony. ***Remarkable” is the right word… it causes the reader to do some hard thinking on his own. Uncommon Wisdom is

certainly worth reading’

FREDERIK POHL, NEW SCIENTIST ‘In the role of interpreter of the “philosophy” of physics today,

Dr Capra has few equals’ JOHN GRIBBIN, TIMES EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT
