Its roots are ancient, while its unique interdisciplinary vision is foundational to the new emerging consciousness. Is there an eternal mathematical law underpinning all of physical reality? How does it depend on higher metaphysical ideas, such as beauty, symmetry, simplicity, and unity? Is truth objective? Why were many of the key founders of modern science inevitably drawn to ancient Greek philosophy? Spencer's extraordinary clarity helps to restore a sane vision of reality, while deepening our appreciation of what Einstein called 'the mysterious'.
