Descrizione libro Beacon Press, United States, 2015. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 234 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A paradigm-shifting blend of science, religion, and philosophy for agnostic, spiritual-but-not-religious, and scientifically minded readers Many people are fed up with the way traditional religion alienates them: too easily it can perpetuate conflict, vilify science, and undermine reason. Nancy Abrams, a philosopher of science, lawyer, and lifelong atheist, is among them. And yet, when she turned to the recovery community to face a personal struggle, she found that imagining a higher power gave her a new freedom. Intellectually, this was quite surprising. Meanwhile her husband, famed astrophysicist Joel Primack, was helping create a new theory of the universe based on dark matter and dark energy, and Abrams was collaborating with him on two books that put the new scientific picture into a social and political context. She wondered, Could anything actually exist in this strange new universe that is worthy of the name God? In A God That Could Be Real, Abrams explores a radically new way of thinking about God. She dismantles several common assumptions about God and shows why an omniscient, omnipotent God that created the universe and plans what happens is incompatible with science but that this doesn t preclude a God that can comfort and empower us. Moving away from traditional arguments for God, Abrams finds something worthy of the name God in the new science of emergence: just as a complex ant hill emerges from the collective behavior of individually clueless ants, and just as the global economy emerges from the interactions of billions of individuals choices, God, she argues, is an emergent phenomenon that arises from the staggering complexity of humanity s collective aspirations and is in dialogue with every individual. This God did not create the universe it created the meaning of the universe. It s not universal it s planetary. It can t change the world, but it helps us change the world. A God that could be real, Abrams shows us, is what humanity needs to inspire us to collectively cooperate to protect our warming planet and create a long-term civilization.

Descrizione libro Beacon Press. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Hardcover. 256 pages. Dimensions: 0.0in. x 0.0in. x 0.0in.A paradigm-shifting blend of science, religion, and philosophy for agnostic, spiritual-but-not-religious, and scientifically minded readers Many Americans are disaffected by traditional religion for the way it can perpetuate conflict and ignore science and reason. Nancy Ellen Abrams, life-long atheist, lawyer, and philosopher of science, is one of them. And yet after turning to the recovery community in her struggle with an eating disorder, she found that imagining a higher power gave her a new and surprising freedom from her illness. Intellectually, this made no sense to her. At the same, she had been collaborating with her husbandfamed astrophysicist Joel Primack, one of the creators of astronomys modern picture of the universeabout how to present a radically new understanding of the universe to the public and put it into a humanly meaningful context. While writing two books with Primack, Abrams began to wonder whether anything real in this new and still unexplored understanding of our very old universe might be worthy of the name God. InA God That Could Be Real, Abrams explores the radical new possibility of a God that is real but does not break any of the rules of physics as we know them: a God that doesnt require a suspension of disbelief or of reason, an emergent phenomenon that exists in the same way that culture and the economy exist. The God Abrams explores unites all of humanity and provides the wisdom and larger sense of meaning that we need to face our future, as well as the future of our damaged planet, togetherwhile being powerful enough to change a life.
