[From] one of the most prominent voices in the discussions... Contemplative Science is a useful primer.
(Benjamin Bogin Buddhadharma
Wallace makes a strong case.
(George Scialabba Boston Globe
A copy should go to every scientist - both physical and contemplative - in the land.
(David Fontana The Scientific and Medical Network
Provocative, challenging, and engaging, Contemplative Science should be read by all serious students of the mind, scientists, contemplatives, and religious scholars alike. Alan Wallace has a breathtaking command of knowledge rooted in Buddhism but embracing the physical and cognitive sciences and most importantly informed by meditation practice. This book will help set the stage for a unique development in the twenty-first-centurya genuine collaboration between the contemplative traditions and Western science.
