> Stephen Hawking lui-même ne s’intéresse pas aux relations entre la spiritualité et la physique quantique. Le meilleur et le plus récent résumé de ces relations se trouve dans le livre de Paul Davies, The Mind of God (New York : Simon and Schuster, 1992) qui a été traduit en français sous le titre 'L’Esprit de Dieu' (éd. du Rocher). Dans cette suite de son désormais classique God and the New Physics (traduit en français sous le titre La Nouvelle Physique, Flammarion), Paul Davies aborde une question cruciale : l’existence d'un créateur intelligent est-elle cohérente avec la cosmologie moderne ?

Paul Davies is a an excellent science writer, bringing fresh perspective to historical and new science but what makes this book particularly interesting is the insight we get from firsthand access to the research on the subject.

Biology is still a strange science, exceptions outweigh the rule when you try to make any statement, there is a lack of fundamental principles to follow and even being able to effect a measurement reliably is completely non trivial.

However this state is unlikely to remain like this forever and the direction of a new way to identify principles in biological sciences will include information as a metric and evolutionary “optionality”.

Paul Davies in this book brings something new evem to people that feel they know contemporary biological methods.

On the down side the book is less accessible than other texts by the author ans requires attentive reading.

Advances in the field of science known as the new physics could bring within our grasp a unified description of all creation. This would demand a radical reformulation of the most fundamental aspects of reality and a way of thinking that is closer in accord with mysticism than materialism.
