Overview

Calling for a new science of the mind, this proposal recommends combining the contemplative wisdom of some of the world’s major religions—Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Taoism—with the scientific approach. Beginning by examining the history of science and demonstrating how it has traditionally ignored the mind—despite its generally accepted role as the instrument through which we perceive and understand the world—the book argues that the meditative techniques practiced for millennia by the world’s great spiritual traditions can lead to new dimensions of consciousness and deepen the experience of reality.

Pidiendo una nueva ciencia de la mente, esta propuesta recomienda combinar la sabiduría contemplativa de algunas de las grandes religiones del mundo—el budismo, el cristianismo, el hinduismo, el islamismo y el taoísmo—con el enfoque científico. Comenzando por examinar la historia de la ciencia y demostrando como ésta ha tradicionalmente ignorado la mente—a pesar del papel que juega la mente como el instrumento a través del cual percibimos y entendemos el mundo—el libro argumenta que las técnicas meditativas practicadas por las grandes tradiciones espirituales del mundo durante milenios pueden llevar a nuevas dimensiones de conciencia y profundizar en la experiencia de la realidad.
