“This book goes much deeper. It treats imperfection as a cosmic phenomenon with influence across the physical world, the living world and the world of man.”
DÚN LAOGHAIRE, Ireland (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
Through research and study, Walsh noticed two conflicting worldviews: one saw a world based on order, purpose and certainty – a perfection seeking world – while the other showed a world based on randomness, uncertainty and accident – an imperfection-ruled world. In “Imperfection,” he explores the roles played by both perfection and imperfection in human affairs and in the formation of the universe.
“Was creation based on concepts of perfection or imperfection?” Walsh asks. “Was there purpose or just randomness? Was there design or just accident? I feel we are at a crossroads. The old certainties of the Age of Perfection are disappearing and the uncertainties of the Age of Imperfection are taking their place.”
Walsh tackles the weighty subjects in an easy, engaging style, assuming no previous scientific of philosophic knowledge on the part of the reader. He brings together concepts from science, art, philosophy and religion into a single, coherent framework, concluding that all have imperfection as their hidden, driving force.
“Quite a number of books are available which deal with imperfection at the personal level – how to deal with feelings of imperfection in our personal lives,” Walsh says. “This book goes much deeper. It treats imperfection as a cosmic phenomenon with influence across the physical world, the living world and the world of man.”
