with a forward by victor gostin and a brief biography of a remarkable life
Astrophysicist Hugh Murdoch (1924-2015) was a lifelong member of the Theosophical Society with a penetrating insight into the confluence of science and Theosophy. Dr Murdoch once tentatively defined Theosophy as — a field of enquiry that tries to understand the meaning of life at all levels—spiritual, physical, personal, universal. Theosophy embraces all of them.
When asked what advice he would give to new members of the Theosophical Society, he replied — Read widely, read many points of view, keep an open mind, try to engage in your own search for truth in your own way ... Seek your own wisdom.
