Is Buddhism Scientific?
 
It sounds like an archetypal "question to which the answer is no". Buddhism is a spiritual tradition aimed at improving the human condition, while science seeks to analyse and explain the physical world. How can the two have anything in common? A number of claims have been made - that Buddhism anticipates quantum theory, for example - that just don't stand up to close scrutiny. Yet there are striking parallels between the way science and Buddhism approach their very different subject matter - and in that sense, Buddhism really could be called "scientific". This book takes a careful look at both sides of the argument.
