Summary
The authors show that a generalized principle of complementarity is pervasive not only in physical theories such as cosmological models of the universe but also in the constructions of all human realities. They suggest that consciousness can no longer be divorced from the problem of the way science operates. The book concludes by making the case that this realization entails a new way of understanding the universe that could obviate much of the current conflict between science and religion, while providing at the same time a basis for valuation that is better suited for coordinating all human experience. - Back cover
