Banyen's Description: 

These 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 book arises from that serendipitous encounter and the contentious—and 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?read more

Doctor Chopra (The Seven Spiritual Laws of Superheroes and many other books) and Caltech physicist Mlodinow have teamed up to present two sides of some of the most difficult questions facing science and spirituality. In response to ponderings like “What is life?” and “How did the universe emerge?” each writes a brief response from his own perspective. While spirituality and religion are not synonymous, Chopra well represents the pan-religious spiritual point of view. Providing an excellent summary of contemporary thought on issues of science and spirit, and helping to expand the discussion in new directions, this book is useful for readers interested in how scientific and spiritual worldviews differ and concur and for those who want an overview of both.

Chopra does an excellent job explaining why the all-embracing holistic quantum field suggests a dynamic, alive cosmos.
