Science is clearly one of the most profound methods that humans have yet devised for discovering truth, while religion remains the single greatest force for generating meaning. Yet science and religion tend to deny the significance, and even the reality, of each other. All too frequently, the two are seen as mutually exclusive. According to Ken Wilber, one of today's most important and influential philosophers, "There is arguably no more important and pressing topic than the relation of science and religion in the modern world."
In The Marriage of Sense and Soul, Mr. Wilber brilliantly shows how we might begin to think about science and religion in ways that allow for their reconciliation and union, on terms acceptable to both camps. He proves that science is compatible with the world's religions, and explains why integration is essential for a balanced life. Systematically reviewing previous failed attempts at integration, he ultimately suggests a path for the marriage of ancient wisdom and modern knowledge. In doing so, he presents an elegant and accessible program which is breathtaking in its scope -- one that cannot fail to change the way you look at your world.
