From the Publisher:
F. David Peat is one of the most interesting and innovative thinkers around today. His latest book, Pathways of Chance, is a rich, inquiring, and highly readable journey from the creative buzz of his native Liverpool in the sixties to a Native American talking circle. He meets some of the most fascinating minds of twentieth-century science and culture: David Bohm, Roger Penrose, Bertrand Russell, Sir Michael Tippett, Antony Gormley, and Anish Kapoor. He reflects on the elusive nature of quantum reality, the way language shapes our lives, the world of the Blackfoot, and his life in a medieval Italian village. Ultimately, Pathways of Chance is a meditation upon the power of those twin forces, purpose and accident, within all our lives.
