Review of War of the Worldviews

I’m listening to spiritualist Deepak Chopra and physicist Leonard Mlodinow discuss their science vs. spirituality debate, now a book titled War of the Worldviews, and was prepared to dismiss it as hokey and unserious. But both are clearly cutting-edge thinkers who are probing the opportunities and edges of science — and then considering where spirituality and morality come in, though Chopra starts from that corner while Mlodinow makes a powerful case that mankind’s advances are built on rationality, scientific endeavor, and constructive engagement with problems.
