IBNA- 'The Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism' (1975) by Austrian-born American physicist Fritjof Capra has been published in Persian.
Capra summarized his motivation for writing the book: “Science does not need mysticism and mysticism does not need science. But man needs both.” 'The Tao of Physics' has been translated into 23 languages. The Persian translator of the book is Shokoufeh Ghaffari. Hermes Publishing in Tehran has released it in 420 pages and 550 copies.
This book that brought the mystical implications of subatomic physics to popular consciousness for the very first time—way back in 1975. It includes a new preface by the author, in which he reflects on the further discoveries and developments that have occurred in the years since the book’s original publication.
“Physicists do not need mysticism,” Dr. Capra says, “and mystics do not need physics, but humanity needs both.” It’s a message of timeless importance.
