Amazing Grace of Quantum Physics
65,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Science and faith have had a long intertwined history. The relationship has run the gamut from a total disconnect to an adversarial battleground where proponents of each claim total victory. However, if God created the physical world and remains active in the physical world, we cannot ignore the interaction nor can we assume or expect a world of conflict. While nineteenth-century physics brought classical physics--which quite reasonably divorced God and nature--to a culmination, twentieth-century physics, especially quantum physics, has opened a new realm of possible interactions. Even though one can reasonably say that no one understands quantum physics, the fruits of the discipline overflow the cornucopia. People of faith can share the feast; and people of science are welcome at the table of faith. ''This is a unique, enlightening, chronological account of the development of modern physics through quantum mechanics. 75% of the content will not be found in textbooks because it concentrates on the personal history, philosophy, and theology of the scientists involved. Faries is also masterful at bringing his own theology into the discussion of quantum mechanics, letting them inform each other about a series of unresolved paradoxes. To benefit from this book the reader should have had at least a full year of college physics.'' --William Wharton, Emeritus Professor of Physics, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois ''This is a knowledgeable, credible, and challenging account that brings scientific causality and human life decisions and involvement into the ultimate definition of reality. Faries sets forth a beautiful example of how a meticulous, informed science and a committed, orthodox Christian faith can reason together in a harmonious manner.'' --Alan F. Johnson, Professor of New Testament and Christian Doctrine, Wheaton College and Graduate School, Wheaton, Illinois ''I've never had a conversation with Dillard Faries in which I didn't come away with a deeper insight into Scripture or physics or whatever we happened to be talking about. This book has the same effect, with a subject that boggles the mind with the mysterium tremendum of the known universe.'' --Mark Galli, Editor in Chief of Christianity Today Dillard Faries is Professor Emeritus of Physics at Wheaton College. His special interests have been nonlinear optics, physics of music, and quantum physics.

'At heart Annie Dillard's work is a record of her search for God . . . [and] For the Time Being is a brilliant book that . . . sums up God more succinctly than she ever has before.' --David Bowman, Salon Magazine 'This uncommon book is a testament to a rare and redeeming curiosity . . . an exhilarating, graceful roundelay of profound questions and suppositions about the human adventure in nature. And as always, reading Dillard makes this mind-expanding experience an emotional one . . . with a voice blending clear-eyed factuality with prismatic meditations on ineffable things.' --James Zug, Outside Magazine 'Writing as if on the edge of a precipice, staring over into the abyss, Dillard offers a risk-taking, inspiring meditation on life, death, birth, God, evil, eternity, the nuclear age and the human predicament. Her razor-sharp lyricism hones this mind-expanding existential scrapbook, which is imbued with the same spiritual yearning, moral urgency and reverence for nature that has informed nearly all of her nonfiction since the 1972 Pulitzer Prize-winning Pilgrim at Tinker Creek.' -- Publishers Weekly 'This absorbing meditation . . . [is] a spare yet exquisitely wrought narrative . . . By turns funny, flinty, and sublime, Dillard meshes the historical, the scientific, the theological, and the personal in a valiant effort to net life's paradoxes and wonders.' --Donna Seaman, Booklist 'A work of piercing loveliness and sadness . . . One of those very rare works that will bear rereading and rereading again, each time revealing something new of itself.' -- Kirkus Reviews
