Description
A critical comparative analysis of the logic of modern scientific thought and of traditional teachings generally referred to as mythological and mystical. Atlan (biophysics, U. of Paris) suggests that different rationalities with different domains of interest and legitimacy (which cannot be unified in any theory of ultimate reality ) must coexist in practice, although each of them presents itself as an exclusive and all-encompassing truth. He introduces teachings from Jewish talmudic, midrashic, and kabbalist sources and text from Zen and Taoism to exemplify the kind of rationality or controlled irrationality at work in such traditional thinking.
