How did the universe emerge? What makes us human? Did Darwin go wrong? Is consciousness a function of the brain, or are we all waves in the cosmic ocean? What is life? What is God?
In their just released book, War of the Worldviews: Science vs Spirituality, Deepak Chopra, a leading figure in the field of emerging spirituality, and Leonard Mlodinow, a theoretical physicist who teaches at Caltech, offer an insightful exploration of contemporary thoughts and theories of science and spirituality, expanding the discussion and propelling it into new directions.

What people are saying about this phenomenal contribution to the age-old debate:
“We need a worldview grounded in science that does not deny the richness of human nature and the validity of modes of knowing other than the scientific. If we can bring our spirituality, the richness and wholesomeness of our basic human values, to bear upon the course of science in human society, then the different approaches of science and spirituality will contribute together to the betterment of humanity. This book points the way to such a collaborative endeavor.”—His Holiness the Dalai Lama
“Leonard Mlodinow is a lucid thinker and engaging writer who excels in making science and the scientific method accessible.”—Stephen Hawking
“Whether you root for science or spirituality, you will find in these incisive, insightful essays more than enough ammunition to get you through your next debate over the two opposing ways of seeing the world. And you just may find that ‘the other side’ scores some points, too. A fascinating, thought-provoking tour through some of the deepest questions of existence.”—Sharon Begley, author of Change Your Mind, Train Your Brain
