Buddhism and Modern Physics: From Individuals to Relations

Volume 1: Non-Technical Summary

By Robert Alan Paul

Middle-way Buddhism (Madhyamaka) tells us that nothing has inherent nature: all things are ??nya, empty of their own nature, and therefore they manifest as bundles of relations instead of being independently identifiable objects. In this book we examine physical phenomena to determine whether that tenet stands under scrutiny by modern standards of Western philosophy and logic, philosophy of science and physics. Volume 1 is introductory, yet still develops detailed nuances in all relevant topics, while Volume 2 gets deep into the weeds of academic controversies.
