Book Description

I had come across a bit of Schroedinger's philosophy while reading The Masks of God by Joseph Campbell. I found the paragraph to be very spiritual and very beautiful. At the time, it was a surprise to me to find that the author of the piece was one of fathers of modern quantum theory. It took me a couple years, but I finally found it; and I was very impressed. While those who mainly want to know about wave mechanics may not be interested in a work of philosophy, I find the works very mystic and spiritual. In all, this is a very good book for those who like philosophy, and/or are interested in the philosophy of one who was in forefront of what is known about reality today.

This is an amazing book; beautiful and well written. Schrodinger wrote these essays at a time when one could espouse a world-view other than strict reductionist materialism without being attacked by practitioners of the religion of "scientism".While he was himself a materialist, Schrodinger saw into areas of biology and genetics which opened new doors into the thinking of his day and which are still amazing scientist and laymen alike.

Format: Paperback
If you're hoping for a tie-in between philosophy and quantum physics, look elsewhere. The author explicitly excludes that from his discussion right in the introduction.

It is not always very well written. Especially the second half is a bit rambling and disjoint. Nevertheless, Shrodinger's philosophy is interesting. A westerner's take on monism such as that found in Advaita Vedanta.
