Science and the Dao: From the Big Bang to Lived Perfection
Science and the Dao presents a comprehensive examination of core Daoist facets from the point of view of modern science. Exploring its cosmology, physiology, psychology, cultivation, and visions of immortality in the light of astrophysics, particle physics, paleoanthropology, behavioral kinesiology, cell biology, and more, the book enhances the credibility of traditional Daoist ideas and practices, thereby making them more accessible to modern people. At the same time, it offers additional perspectives to scientific understanding as well as new dimensions of practical application, offering a new and enhanced level of translation—of Daoism into Western science as well as of theory into practice—with beneficent effects for both. It is an absolute must for scholars, practitioners, and anyone interested in the interface of religion and science.
