Finding the Hidden Key
Following the overthrow of the classical world picture by the findings of quantum mechanics, physicists have proposed a broad gamut of alternative world views. The Quantum Enigma begins with the major recognition that each of these suffers from a certain “residual Cartesianism” that has been smuggled in unconsciously. It turns out that the moment one discards this hidden and problematic premise, quantum theory begins to ¿make sense¿ in a way that it never has before.
As the author shows, it is now possible, for the first time, to integrate the findings of quantum physics into a world view that conforms to the permanent intuitions of mankind. This work can be read by scientists, but is also surprisingly accessible to the general reader unacquainted with the technical conceptions of physics or the quantum-reality literature.
Praise for The Quantum Enigma
“Wolfgang Smith is as important a thinker as our times boast, and this is his most seminal book.”
— HUSTON SMITH, author of The World’s Religions
“The Quantum Enigma is of great importance not only for the philosophy of science, but also for the whole domain of human knowledge, and should be disseminated as widely as possible.”
— SEYYED HOSSEIN NASR
“Unusually interesting ... profoundly enlightening.”
— HENRY MARGENAU
