Practical Mystic

$ 30.00

A. S. Eddington (1882-1944) was a scientific pioneer and a devout Quaker. As a leading astrophysicist he still maintained his religious belief throughout his scientific career and also defended the interrelation of science and religion while drawing inspiration from both. for instance, at a time when a strict adherence to deductive principles of physics had proved fruitless for understanding the nature of stars, insights from Quaker mysticism led Eddington to argue that an outlook less concerned with certainty and more concerned with further exploration was necessary to overcome the obstacles of incomplete and uncertain knowledge.
