J.B.'s Zor: Philosophy, Spirituality, and Science

J.B.'s Zor: Philosophy, Spirituality, and Science is a riveting exploration of the correlation between philosophy, spirituality, and science, confronting readers with the alarming question of where to turn when we start to question our life's core beliefs. It presents us with a series of debates between Zor, a Haitian dwarf, and Jonathan Brewster, a Bostonian money manager, whose beliefs are challenged and is engaged in an intense debate on the topics of life. It is a powerful exploration of every set of belief system, covering a broad spectrum, ranging from vipassana meditation to Nietzsche to God to sub-atomic entanglement. It is a philosophical awakening of sorts, an excellent read for anyone who has ever questioned the place that philosophy, spirituality, and science hold in our lives and either proponed or questioned the sets of beliefs that each extol.
