Description

Although much has been said and written about coincidences, there is a marked absence when it comes to the development of a comprehensive model that incorporates the many different ways in which they can be understood and explained. One reason for this omission is undoubtedly the sharp divide that exists between those who find coincidences meaningful and those who do not, with the result that the conclusions of the many books and articles on the subject have tended to fall into distinct camps. The Many Faces of Coincidence attempts to remedy this impasse by proposing an inclusive categorisation for coincidences of all shapes and sizes. At the same time, some of the implications arising from the various explanations are explored, including the possibility of an underlying unity of mind and matter constituting the ground of being.

Review quote

ENDORSEMENT BY

- Bernard D. Beitman, MD

'A superb introduction to the study of coincidences! Astutely researched, clearly and cleverly written, Laurence Browne's engaging survey profiles coincidence's many faces.'

ENDORSEMENT BY

- Professor Roderick Main, University of Essex

'Scholarly yet lucid and engaging, Browne's book guides the reader ably through the perplexing world of coincidence and synchronicity.'

ENDORSEMENT BY

- Richard Smoley, author of The Dice Game of Shiva

'A highly intelligent and insightful exploration of perhaps the most difficult topic in all of human thought: coincidence and its relation to causality. I hope this work will pull this discussion out of the doldrums in which it has been stuck for at least a generation.'

ENDORSEMENT BY

- Dr Lance Storm, University of Adelaide

'The Many Faces of Coincidence deserves high-praise in that it succeeds in giving a critical evaluation of a bevy of diverse materials, facts, and opinions, and even implies (if not, suggests) avenues for further research. Highly recommended!'
