"Synchronicity, Science, and Soul-Making represents a breakthrough towards understanding the non-rational, invisible, and spiritual world. Twenty years later; we now have a welcome sequel to The Tao of Physics. Mansfield has brought the mysterious realm of quantum physics together with the insights of Buddhism in clear and simple terms. Definitely a book to take with us into the next millennium."

"This book is a serious, eloquent, and thoroughly engaging exploration of an important and hitherto neglected subject."

Fritjof Capra
Author of The Tao of Physics


"A brilliant and masterfully written book, engaging in style and sophisticated in argument. Synchronicity, Science, and Soul-Making charts new territory in the manner in which it synthesizes material from quantum physics, Jungian psychology, and Buddhist philosophy according to the mentalist philosophy of Paul Brunton and Anthony Damiani, and with its clearheaded and well-documented treatment it is more than simply a clear successor to The Tao of Physics and The Dancing Wu Li Masters, but an accomplishment of altogether a new order."

John R. McRae
Associate Professor of East Asian Religions, Cornell Univ.


"A masterful treatment. . . I liked the interspersion of powerful synchronicity stories throughout the text--it kept bringing the reader back to the mysterious and marvelous domain of synchronicity."

Dennis Merrit
Jungian Analyst


"This is a remarkable work. . . it far surpasses in depth and bridges the best-selling Tao of Physics."

E.C.G. Sudarshan
Professor of Physics, University of Texas at Austin


"This is a landmark book on the topic of synchronicity. . . Other works. . . have been largely deficient in the understanding of the physics involved, the psychological experience, or the philosophical underpinning. This book, however, accomplishes all three."

J. Marvin Spiegelman
Jungian Analyst


"It is a timely, impressive work that deserves attention by not only today's scholars but our generation as a whole. , , , This book is well worth reading and its philosophy is life changing."

Ian Dakers
Sunrise Magazine


"His analytical skills uncover mutually supportive themes which are interwoven into a unified theory that is not only a personal guide for us wanders, but may also lay a social foundation for the next scientific revolution. A very important book."

NAPRA ReView Vol. 7, No. 3


"Brining together Jungian psychology, Buddhist meditation, particle physics, and analytical philosophy, Mansfield, secures a subtle, sophisticated, and respectable philosophical foundation for a phenomenon that challenges our fundamental beliefs about space and time. . . The discussion is clear and cogent. . . one of the best attempts to relate the now-familiar oddities of the new physics to synchronistic phenomena."

Gary Lachman, Gnosis Magazine, Summer 1996


"An accomplished , smoothly eloquent book he makes full use of his academic skill but also a depth of thought and spirit without which this book could have seemed a contrived attempt to bring the soul and mind together on a journey into the unstable world of synchronicity."

Alex Campbell, The Weaver, Issue 18, October, 1996


"This is a careful, deep, and challenging study, well illustrated with case material.  It disentangles some long-standing confusions about synchronicity and is exemplary in its cautious handling of the relationship between physics and psychology. . . . The book is an important contribution to the dialogues between science, psychology, and religion."

Dr. Roderick Main, University of Essex, Religious Studies Review, Vol. 24. p 269.
