Just finished reading How the Hippies Saved Physics: Science, Counterculture, and the Quantum Revival by David Kaiser. This is a strange one, but well-researched. Almost half the book consists of footnotes, bibliography, and index, but the index is well-nigh useless, because it contains neither page numbers, locations, or hyperlinks. The book centers on the personalities and activities of the Fundamental Fysiks Group and their sometimes drug/eastern religion/new age-induced efforts to come to grips with the philosophical ramifications of modern quantum theory, and how some of their results have entered the mainstream and altered science forever.
