The Lubavitcher Rebbe on Science, Technology and Medicine
Mind over Matter is compiled from the Rebbe's talks, discourses and letters on science, technology and medicine. It covers such diverse topics as proof of the Creator, origin of the species, aviation, fate vs. freedom, geometry, medicine and more.
The Rebbe's approach was that there cannot be any true conflict between Torah and science. Any apparent contradictions should be resolvable by proper study of the two disciplines, all while maintaining an adherence to a literal understanding of both the written and the oral Torah.
This book encompasses many of the Lubavitcher Rebbe's teachings on science, drawn from his Ma'amarim (Chassidic discourses), Sichot (talks), recorded transcripts, the 39 volumes of Lukutei Sichot, and his correspondence.
Original Hebrew edition was compiled by Rabbi Joseph Ginsburg and Professor Herman Branover, published under the title "Mah Rabu Ma'asecha Hashem".
This English edition was translated and edited by Dr. Arnie Gotfryd, Ph.D.
