Laozi and Quantum Physics an interview with Shantena Sabbadini

By Science and Nonduality

Shantena Augusto Sabbadini (http://www.shantena.com) worked as a theoretical physicist at the University of Milan and at the University of California. In Milan he researched the foundations of quantum physics, focusing on the description of the quantum process of observation, a problem that keeps fascinating him up to the present. In California he contributed to the first identification of a black hole.

In the 1990’s he was scientific consultant for the Eranos Foundation, an East-West research centre founded under the guidance of C.G. Jung in the 1930’s. In that context he studied Chinese classics under the guidance of the Dutch sinologist Rudolf Ritsema and produced various translations and commentaries, including the Yijing and the Daodejing.

Since 2002 he is associate director of the Pari Center for New Learning, an alternative educational institution located in the small medieval village of Pari, Tuscany, Italy. He teaches short courses at the Schumacher College and leads workshops on Daoism, quantum physics and the Yijing as a tool for introspection.
