9781845400125: Ways of Knowing: Science and Mysticism Today

The world faces a crisis of meaning. The old stories ― whether the exclusive claims of rival religions or the grand schemes of perennial philosophy ― seem bankrupt to many. The editorial stance of this book is that mysticism and science offer a way forward here, but only if they abandon the idol of a single logical synthesis and acknowledge the diversity of different ways of knowing. The contributors, from disciplines as diverse as music, psychology, mathematics and religion, build a vision that honours diversity while pointing to an implicit unity.

About the Author:

Chris Clarke gained his PhD in General Relativity at the University of Cambridge, later studying at Hamburg and York before taking up a Professorship in Applied Mathematics at the University of Southampton, leaving to work free-lance in 1999. Alongside his main work in theoretical cosmology he has published in brain physics, philosophy and religion, serving on various editorial boards including Journal of Physics A and Ecotheology.

Review:

"An important contribution to the continuing cultural debate about the validity of different ways of knowing and, more specifically, a challenge to the prevailing scientism which assumes that only empirical methods currently sanctioned by science are legitmate."

(David Lorimer Network Review)

"A stimulating collection of essays by twelve very different thinkers."

(Pat Pinsent Catholic Women's Network)

"This great collection of essays, some academic, some folksy, describes our knowing in a dozen different ways."

(Marian Van Eyk McCain Resurgence)

"Ways of Knowing exposes readers to the fascinating interplay between mysticism and science around the world. The essays argue for a reasonable approach to knowledge that respects epistemological diversity without pushing for an easy synthesis."

(Science and Theology News)
