Is God an Illusion? The Great Debate Between Science and Spirituality

Deepak Chopra and Leonard Mlodinow

Summary

Deepak Chopra is a prolific author: over 60 titles are listed at the start of this publication. A controversial figure, he emphasises holistic and alternative medicine with 'New Age' overtones. Leonard Mlodinow is physicist at Caltech University, with seven titles to his credit. The catchy title of this present book reads: Is God an Illusion, but the real subject is A debate between Science and Spirituality, for 'God' is neither the God of the monotheists nor the God of the polytheists, but rather 'consciousness' which Chopra identifies with 'spirituality'.
