What Quantum Physics Tells Us about Our Origins and How We Should Live
by Amit Goswami
Reviewed by The Editors on June 1, 2008
The iconoclastic physicist Amit Goswami has never shied away from acknowledging a divine intelligence in his study of the quantum world, and here he makes his case. While he harbors little patience for the neo-Darwinist position (“they are dead wrong when they say there is no meaning and purpose to evolution”), he is also quick to criticize intelligent design theorists when they argue against the scientific validity of evolution. His solution? Quantum activism—aligning oneself with evolutionary imperatives to change the world for the better.
