Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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 betweeen 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"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
