Description

In this collection, distinguished scientists and thinkers from a wide range of disciplines examine the relationship of scientific knowledge and practice to the wider dimension of human life and awareness.

For some this appears as spirituality, for others an investigation into consciousness and the intelligent heart of the cosmos. Whether in physics, cosmology or biology, these essays explore the very nature of knowledge itself and the continuing role of human creativity, emphasizing the need for crossing disciplinary boundaries in our search for understanding.
