Science and Religion: Stepping Toward the Light at the Mouth of the Cave
MetadataShow full item record
In analyzing the dialogue between science and religion, the author finds that it is hampered by three semantic problems. The first denies, or at least undervalues, the two modes of knowing most apropos to religion: the emotional and the intuitive/mystical modes. Secondly, the uncritical use of language causes considerable confusion. The third problem limits discussion to what Stephan Schwartz has called the \"Grand Material Paradigm.\" As the conclusion of the essay, a precis of an alternate cosmology is presented.
