Quantum Gods

Vic Stenger’s latest book, Quantum Gods: Creation, Chaos, and the Search for Cosmic Consciousness is about to come out. Here is the blurb I wrote for it:

Physics has developed a reputation of providing support for all sorts of supernatural beliefs, from old-fashioned religions to New Age ideas. Quantum physics, especially, seems to mean “magic” for too many people. Most of us in physics treat all this as an annoyance and go on with our teaching and research. This is all the more reason to grateful for the work of Victor Stenger, who is one of the best for diligently separating real physics from popular misconceptions. In Quantum Gods, Stenger combines a lucid, nonmathematical explanation of fundamental ideas of physics with a uncompromising argument showing how pressing physics into the service of either New Age or theistic religious beliefs invariably distorts our understanding of the universe. Everyone interested in debates over physics and the supernatural should read this book.
