Dialogues With Scientists and Sages: The Search for Unity
|Nine of the 13 essays presented here were originally published in the American Theosophist (1) or Re-Vision (8). However, they have been cut, re-edited, and given new titles. The book is an outgrowth of Weber's personal search for unity in the fields of philosophy, science, and mysticism. In this work she looks at what leaders of science and mysticism have to say on the subject of the unity of the two fields. The introductory essay on the search for unity by Weber is itself worth the price of the book. Unfortunately, after so beautifully setting the stage for the dialogues that form the heart of the book, there is no summary chapter at the end and there are only a few paragraphs at the end of the introduction in which she touches on whether or not the responses of the "sages and scientists" answered her lifelong question re the unity of science and religion! As for the dialogue, of those who interacted with Weber, David Bohm is the central person of two and is one of two or more interviewed in other sections. Also in dialogue with Weber were Lama Anagarika Govinda and Rupert Sheldrake (one alone, one with Bohm), the Dalai Lama (one alone and one with Bohm), and in single interviews: Bede Griffiths, Ilya Prigogine, Stephen Hawking, and Krishnamurti. The book is an important volume for both religionists and scientists or anyone with a yen to know more about the nature of reality.|
