Unifies science and the sacred based on what we've learned from quantum physics.

In this manifesto for the twenty-first century, Basarab Nicolescu, a Romanian quantum physicist, uses the unification of the scientific culture and the sacred as his axis to address the problem of fragmentation which plagues contemporary life. Nicolescu identifies the dangers of self-destruction caused by modernity and increased use of technology and offers alternative ways to address them -- a transdisciplinary approach that propels us beyond the either/or thinking that gave rise to the antagonisms that initially produced the problems. Nicolescu calls on us to rethink everything in terms of what quantum physics has shown us about the nature of the universe. He argues that reality is not something that exists on one level, but rather on many levels, and only a transdisciplinary approach can deal with the dynamics of several levels of reality at once.

“This is a brilliant, visionary and compassionate work which I urge you to read and ponder.” -- The Scientific and Medical Network

“This book is uncommon in that it offers far-reaching general insights about the world, culture, and the human spirit, as well as a program for action. The author is as brilliant as he is unconventional.” -- Jacob Needleman, author of The Heart of Philosophy

Basarab Nicolescu is a theoretical physicist at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the University of Paris. He is the author of several books including Science, Meaning, and Evolution -- The Cosmology of Jacob Boehme, translated from the French by Rob Baker, winner of the 1992 Benjamin Franklin Award for Best History Book.
