Reviews
"This book deals with a very important and contemporary topic -- breaking out of causal patterns of a reductive sort into more holistic non-reductive ways of thinking and explanation. It also brings together Western and Eastern ideas combining a particularly important aspect of Buddhist thought with new Western conceptions. It belongs to movements toward global integration." -- Henry Le Roy Finch, Hunter College and Graduate Center of the City University of New York
