2) Brief Description about the book
What is nature? What is it made of? With the advent of the scientific revolution from around the sixteenth century, man’s thinking about nature took a sharp turn. The ancient view of nature had been dominated by the religious concept that nature is a product of God, and one should worship nature and its variegated manifestations. This was, however, greatly altered with the development of modern science. The discovery of the gravitational law, the laws of physics and chemistry, the laws of mechanics – classical as well as quanntum-and the laws of genetics, conceiving the big bang theory of the origin of the universe, life and so on, have significantly changed man’s views about nature. But how far can we mathematicize nature? Are there limits to this semingly ever expanding horion of unfolding hidden principles of nature? This book is a serious attempt to closely reexamine our evolving views of nature and their limiations. Taking insights from Vedanta, it further endeavors to grasp the deeper meaning of man’s relation with nature. Dr. T. D. Singh, who personally withnessed the evolution of modern science for over half a century, presents in this volume some notable reflections easily accessible to the scholar and the layman alike.
