Thomas J. McFarlane is "an independent scholar of no mean stature" in the words of eminent professor of religion and philosophy Huston Smith. His writings on science and religion have appeared in journals and conference proceedings, and he has given talks on the subject for over a decade. A graduate of Stanford University in physics, he also holds advanced degrees in mathematics and in philosophy and religion. In addition to his scholarly work, he has been immersed in the study and practice of the world's spiritual traditions for over 12 years. He lives in Eugene, Oregon. Wes Nisker, who penned the introduction, is also the author of two bestselling books: Buddha's Nature (Bantam) and the underground classic, Crazy Wisdom (Ten Speed Press). He has practiced Buddhist meditation for 30 years with various teachers in Asia and the West, and is the founder and editor of the bi-annual Buddhist journal Inquiring Mind. He teaches retreats and workshops on Buddhist meditation and philosophy at venues internationally, and is affiliated with Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, California.
