Book Description:
Distinguished philosophers, Buddhist scholars, physicists, and cognitive scientists examine the contrasts and connections between the worlds of Western science and Buddhism. Contributors, the Dalai Lama among them, assess not only the fruits of inquiry from East and West, but also shed light on the underlying assumptions of these disparate world views. The first section presents an historical overview of key modes of inquiry; the second addresses points of intersection between Buddhism and the physical sciences; and the third the ways Buddhism and the cognitive sciences inform each other. Twentieth century physics most notably quantum mechanics has raised profound epsitemological and ontological issues that challenge many of the traditional assumptions underlying science as a whole. On the broadest level, this work illuminates multiple ways of exploring the nature of human identity, the mind, and the universe at large.
