WHAT DOES QUANTUM PHYSICS HAVE TO DO WITH IT?
How Holistic Approaches to Health & Healing Are Supported by the Latest Findings in the Hardest of the Sciences.
Western science is still dominated by a mechanistic worldview based on classical Newtonian physics. According to this worldview only phenomenon that are measurable and quantifiable are worthy of scientific investigation. This is the cornerstone of the biomedical model and the foundation for traditional Health Promotion with its focus on risk factors, outcome measurement and behavioral control. Within this context, more holistic, ecological approaches are often considered soft, touchy-feely and unscientific. This presentation will explore how recent, often startling findings in quantum physics and Chaos Theory are exposing the limitations of traditional explanations of reality and supporting a more holistic, ecological approach to health and illness.Jonathan Robison, Ph.D., MS Adjunct Assistant Professor, Michigan State University, Adjunct Associate Professor, Western Michigan University Phone: (517) 507-0287 Fax: (517) 507-0265 e-mail: email@example.com
