What is harder to understand is that the book has now gone through several editions, and in each of them Capra has left intact the now out-of-date physics, including new forewords and afterwords that with a straight face deny what has happened.
Description En esta edicion actualizada del Tao de la Fisica se incluye un nuevo epilogo donde el autor hace una revision lx los descubrimientos de los quince anos transcurridos desde la primera edicion, comenta las criticas que el libro ha recibido y el desarrollo general y posibilidades taoo para una nueva vision cientifica mundial. Heisenberg told me that these talks had helped him a lot with his work in physics, because they showed him that all these new ideas in quantum physics were in fact not all that crazy.
He realized there was, in fact, a whole culture that subscribed to very similar ideas.

The foreword to the second edition of claims, “It has been very gratifying for me that none of these recent developments has invalidated anything I wrote seven years ago. Starting with reasonable descriptions of quantum physics, he constructs elaborate extensions, totally bereft of the understanding of how carefully experiment and theory are woven fritjlf and how much blood, df, and tears go into each painful advance.

Mansfielda professor of physics and astronomy at Colgate University who wrote many papers and books of his own connecting physics to Buddhism and also to Jungian psychology complimented The Tao of Physics in Physics Today: Peter Woita mathematical physicist at Columbia Universitycriticized Capra for continuing to build his case for physics-mysticism parallels on the bootstrap model of strong-force interactions, long after the Standard Model had become thoroughly accepted by physicists as a better model: He talked a lot with Tagore about Indian philosophy.
In fact, most of them were anticipated in the original edition,” a statement far from any relation to the reality that in the standard model was nearly universally accepted in the physics community, and the bootstrap theory was a dead idea Niels Bohr had a similar experience when he went to China.
