Science

The hard sciences (physics, biology, and medicine) and the human sciences (psychology, sociology, and philosophy) are all represented here—though sometimes in ways you might not expect. These are books that make for dialogue between the scientific and spiritual worldviews, with the aim of enriching both.

    Organized by the Mind and Life Institute, this discussion addresses some of the most troublesome questions that have driven a wedge between Western science and religion.

    Letters to Vanessa

    On Love, Science, and Awareness in an Enchanted World

    • by
    • Jeremy Hayward
    The world we inhabit is enchanted—every tree, rock, and star, and even "empty" space itself, is teeming with living energy and awareness. And it's all nearer to us than our own breath. Why, then, can't we see it? Because, according to Jeremy Hayward, we are taught not to. And because our cultural conditioning keeps us in denial about the fact that a strictly scientific worldview provides only a partial, and… Read More

    Space, Time, and Medicine

    Foreword by Fritjof Capra

    • by

For many years, these theories have been accepted as the most accurate descriptions we have ever had about our world. Nevertheless, medicine has been reluctant to incorporate these ideas into itself, continuing to view the body as a clockwork mechanism, in which illness is caused by a breakdown of "parts." Drawing on his… Read More
