SUMMARY

RGtitl=Cosmic UnderstandingRGep= RGSUbt=Philosophy and Science of the UniverseRGep= RGauth=Milton K. MunitzRGep= RGdn5=RGem=This is a book to be argued with, ar~gued from, listened to, objected to, learned from, respected, agreed with, and disagreed with.RGth=.RGth=.RGth=. Munitz, far from proposing all the answers in ei~ther the philosophical or the physical discus~- sions, poses the questions and provides tantalizing directions of in~quiry for the reader.''RGep= RGm-=RGMDUL=Paul A. Robinson, Jr., The Christian Sci~ence MonitorRGMDNM=RGep= RGdn5=RGem=For those who live with complete faith in the power of reason and who be~- lieve that the observable cosmos is all there is or was or ever will be, Munitz's RGMDUL=Cosmic UnderstandingRGMDNM= should be a pro~- foundly disturbing book. In a thought~ful and closely structured account, Mu~nitz defends two intertwined concepts. First, reality, often depicted solely as a simple physical process, albeit won~drous and in~- finite, is actually some~thing mysteri~ously deeper. In particu~lar, he argues that the evolutionary na~ture of the uni~verse points to some larger transcenden~tal quality. Secondly, he reasons that the perceptual world is a human construct, always only incom~pletely knowable.RGth=.RGth=.RGth=. he has argued bril~liantly for the depth and thickness of re~ality.''RGep= RGm-=RGMDUL=Owen Gingerich, NatureRGMDNM=RGep= RGdn5=RGem=RGMDBO=Milton K.
