This interdisciplinary volume arises out of a series of university events arranged by the Scientific and Medical Network between November 2001 and July 2003.The Science, Consciousness and Ultimate Reality project was set up with the support of the John Templeton Foundation in order to examine critical issues at the interface between science, religion and the relatively new field of ‘consciousness studies’. The results give a variety of fascinating perspectives on this emerging area.David Lorimer has brought together an impressive list of contributors representing the diverse fields of physics, neuroscience, psychology, theology and moral philosophy: Denis Alexander, Bernard Carr, Chris Clarke, Guy Claxton, Peter Fenwick, David Fontana, John Habgood, Mary Midgley, Ravi Ravindra, Alan Torrance and Keith Ward.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Every chapter is worth reading and Guy Caxton's is a gem." Theology"The book reads relatively free of obfuscatory jargon, no doubt because of the interaction among the authors from their co-participation in conferences and lectures on the theme. This exchange among the contributors/presenters has produced a high degree of focal centrality in the overall text." Metapsychology"To present a range of viewpoints is commendable, especially when most of the individual essays are distinctly good." Neil Spurway, European Society for the Study of Science and Theology News"It is hardly possible to exaggerate the timeliness of the theme . . . This is a book which most readers of this journal should relish." David Hicks, The Christian Parapsychologist."This is a compulsory read. . . . These essays are at the cutting edge of the ultimate questions of human existence. Where are we now? What is the self? How does everything fit together?" Max Payne, Network"Vital in light of researchers' growing realization that the foundational philosophy of science should accomodate mind-matter interaction." Science and Theology News"There is much we can learn from this intelligent, well argued and paradigm testing book. We should take advantage of it." Michael Baigent, Freemasonry Today
