Synopsis

In today's secular environment the two worlds of science and spirituality are alien worlds distinguished primarily by a deep-seated antagonism in which the principles of spirituality and the pragmatism of modern science exist face to face in a perennial state of confrontation. This profoundly learned work searches the borderlands between these two worlds. Divided into three parts this work begins by analysing modern epistemological assumptions surrounding the faculty of reason and comparing it to traditional ideas concerning the intellect; the second and third parts deal masterfully with spiritual imagination and the light of faith. Through a penetrating analysis of reason and intellect spiritual imagination and the light of faith this book addresses fundamental questions pertaining to our search for meaning. Countering the prevalent assumptions which determine our secular environment these pages travel the borderlands between science and religion and open passageways to a higher understanding of spiritual life.
