Mechanistic and Nonmechanistic Science
by Richard L. Thompson (Sadaputa dasa)
This work makes a sober, thorough, carefully reasoned, and
well-documented case that the prevailing theories of physics and biology
have grave shortcomings which can be traced to their reliance on an
underlying mechanistic framework. Dr. Thompson shows how physics is
incapable of dealing with the phenomenon of consciousness and how
biology is unable to account for the existence of complex living forms.
Arguing that valid scientific theory does not have to be mechanistic,
Dr. Thompson outlines a nonmechanistic science that would complement
mechanistic science and round out the human quest for understanding.
Mechanistic and Nonmechanistic Science may well set the stage for the
next revolution in scientific thinking.
