Présentation de l'éditeur

This book is a collection of the finest mystical writings of the great physicists of the 20th Century. They are Max Planck, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, Erwin Schrödinger, Wolfgang Pauli, James Jeans, Arthur Eddington, Eugene Wigner, David Bohm, and Freeman Dyson. The essays are written in nontechnical language and will be of interest to a wide range of readers.

Science enhances the moral values of life because it furthers a love of truth and reverence—love of truth displaying itself in the constant endeavor to arrive at a more exact knowledge of the world of mind and matter around us, and reverence, because every advance in knowledge brings us face to face with the mystery of our own being. --- Max Planck

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science... It was the experience of mystery--even if mixed with fear--that engendered religion. A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which are only accessible to our reason in their most elementary forms--it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man. --- Albert Einstein

At one extreme is the idea of an objective world, pursuing its regular course in space and time, independently of any kind of observing subject; this has been the guiding image of modern science. At the other extreme is the idea of a subject, mystically experiencing the unity of the world and no longer confronted by an object or by any objective world; this has been the guiding image of Asian mysticism. Our thinking moves somewhere in the middle, between these two limiting conceptions; we should maintain the tension resulting from these two opposites. --- Werner Heisenberg

The scientific picture of the real world around me is very deficient. It gives a lot of factual information, puts all our experience in a magnificently consistent order, but it is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near to our heart and that really matters to us. It cannot tell us a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet, physical pain and physical delight; it knows nothing of beautiful and ugly, good or bad, God and eternity. --- Erwin Schrödinger

The essential fact is simply that all the pictures which science now draws of nature, and which alone seem capable of according with observational fact, are mathematical pictures. Most scientists would agree that they are nothing more than pictures—fictions, if you like, if by fiction you mean that science is not yet in contact with ultimate reality... To speak in terms of Plato's well-known simile, we are still imprisoned in our cave, with our backs to the light, and can only watch the shadows on the wall. --- James Jeans

Scientific instincts warn me that any attempt to answer the question "What is real?" in a broader sense than that adopted for domestic purposes in science, is likely to lead to a floundering among vain words and high-sounding epithets. We all know that there are regions of the human spirit untrammelled by the world of physics. In the mystic sense of the creation around us, in the expression of art, in a yearning towards God, the soul grows upward and finds the fulfillment of something implanted in its nature… Whether in the intellectual pursuits of science or in the mystical pursuits of the spirit, the light beckons ahead and the purpose surging in our nature responds. --- Arthur Eddington

It appears that mind, as manifested by the capacity to make choices, is to some extent inherent in every atom... God may be either a world-soul or a collection of world-souls. So I am thinking that atoms and humans and God may have minds that differ in degree but not in kind. --- Freeman Dyson

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An extended stroll along the limits of scientific knowledge. 13 juillet 2014
Par Andy Ferguson - Publié sur

This is an important and thoughtful book. Einstein and other well known physicists offer entertaining and quotable comments. But lesser known writers like James Jeans and Arthur Eddington offer especially insightful comments on ethical and mystical problems that modern physics is still unable to clarify. It is rather astonishing to read writings by modern physicists, persons well versed in the symbolic mathematics of quantum theory, acknowledging that ancient philosophical idealism, the idea that a universal mind may underlie physical reality, cannot be discounted. The limits of science are acknowledged here. It is the strange contradiction of our times that science exposes the roots of our most deeply held delusions in every sphere of life, yet it must maintain a respectful silence about the true nature of our existence.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The intellectual beauty of these great men shines through these essays 11 juillet 2014
Par James A. Lewis - Publié sur

The intellectual beauty of these great men shines through these essays, even through their words must shine through translations into English from their native tongues. The major point they all make is the duality of human understanding between science -- the "how" of natural relationships -- and mysticism -- the "why" of nature. I find it refreshing that these people, who stand head and shoulders above most modern scientists in intelligence, had the courage to state the obvious. My understanding of these essays is the skew between human intellect and the nature of reality.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Quantum physics is a new subject for me. Intriging and insightful. 28 janvier 2014

Very deep book. I have to read and reread it to understand it. I am very new to quantum physics and I love what I am learning. I did not know that many of the scientists believe in God. I always thought there was a clear distinction between religion and science. I am loving learning so much. The questions I always ask: Is there a God - a greater being that put us here? Is this reality or is there another dimension and this is like our dream state? What is our purpose in life? Scientists are trying to find the answers. I love the book! Renee Block

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Spiritual Lives of Genius Scientists 3 mai 2014

I enjoyed reading this book. Most people believe there is a huge divide between science and religion. This book collects samples of the writings of the biggest names in physics from the twentieth century. I was fascinated by the ideas and insights these amazing people have concerning the unexplainable and mysterious universe. I think most of them still have a problem with "organized religion", but these are definitely spiritual people.

I give this book a 4 on content and a 1 for the copyediting, hence a 3. Why the author didn't copyedit this before final release is beyond me. Misspelled words, etc.; some obviously occurring when the book was converted from one file format to another.
