Science and philosophy in the Indian Buddhist classics. Vol 1
Author: Dalai Lama
Volume 1 - The material world. Curated by Thupten Jinpa. Italian translation by Fabrizio Pallotti
The first of a series of four volumes that collect classical Buddhist scientific and philosophical investigations on the nature of reality. Research on the physical world in India's fine tradition of scientific thought is presented here with its studies on atomic theory, the relativity of time, the concept of multiple universes, embryonic development, brain function and microorganisms within the Human Body. This work opens up a precious opportunity to access the analyzes and the great results achieved by the scientific and philosophical researches of Indian Buddhism, offering valid ideas for establishing a richer intercultural comparison between the scientific thought of classical India and the West.
