Description

Two bestselling authors first met in a televised Caltech debate on "the future of God," one an articulate advocate for spirituality, the other a prominent physicist. This remarkable book is the product of that serendipitous encounter and the contentious-but respectful-clash of worldviews that grew along with their friendship. In War of the Worldviews these two great thinkers battle over the cosmos, evolution and life, the human brain, and God, probing the fundamental questions that define the human experience. How did the universe emerge? What is the nature of time? What is life? Did Darwin go wrong? What makes us human? What is the connection between mind and brain? Is God an illusion? This extraordinary book will fascinate millions of readers of science and spirituality alike, as well as anyone who has ever asked themselves, What does it mean that I am alive?

Professional reviews

"Two bestselling authors--one a physician and spiritual theorist, the other a physicist--present a logical and friendly debate that addresses the meaning of life, the nature of the universe, the concept of evolution, the connections between the mind and the brain, and the question of the existence of a Creator. Each of their narrations is deliberate and distinctive. Chopra's soothing, rich voice explores life and scientific theories from a purely spiritual mind-set. Mlodinow's more objective tone emphasizes his scientific background. As this point-counterpoint approach explores topics essential to the core of human existence, Chopra and Mlodinow deliver comprehensive, believable, conflicting, yet deeply intelligent commentary on some of life's greatest mysteries.
