DELUSIONS - Pragmatic Realism
The book, the author writes, is: "Dedicated to Richard Dawkins, in gratitude for many hours of enjoyable reading. While he and I don't always see eye to eye, the doctor might find, here, additional arguments for his Cause Célèbre."
The author goes on to advance compelling arguments regarding Delusions ingrained and perpetrated by both, the religious and the scientific communities. He concludes that science/religion argument is equally as deluded on both sides of the equation, particularly when advanced from the preeminently fundamentalist point of view.
With frequent sprinkling of humor and considerable intellectual prowess, Stanislaw Kapuscinski exposes DELUSIONS masquerading under the guise of science and religion.
5 Star Reviews (on Smashwords) include:
Having read God Delusion, I'm so glad that Stanislaw Kapuscinski took it upon himself to extend the 'Delusions' to the field of science. Pragmatic Realism seems well suited to the task of balancing the odds. The book shows, clearly, the folly of one-sided view of reality. It also evident that those who criticize the most, have most to learn. (Jo Steinman)
I love the idea of being mostly empty space. Perhaps we are just bundles of emotions, held in a gentle yoke of mental discipline. Now this would be neither religion nor science. It just would be a wonderful way to live, to experience reality.
I am reminded of a poem by William Blake:
How do you know but every bird
that wings the airy way,
Is an enormous world of delight,
closed to your senses five?
If birds can do it, why shouldn't we? You opened a new reality for me.
