Philosophy without science may be blind. But science without philosophy may lack vision. Today, our understanding of consciousness, evolution, and the cosmos is undergoing a transformation. Increasingly, scientists are recognizing that materlistic accounts of man and nature are inadequate. A richer understanding of the cosmos and the role of consciousness in filling in the blanks of creation is on the horizon. “Science and the Soul: Exploring the Frontiers of Consciousness and the Cosmos” examines the growing convergence of science and spirituality.

“You would not find the boundaries of the soul, even by traveling along every path: so deep a measure does it have,” so reckoned the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus. Today, however, most scientists and philosophers are writing the soul’s obituary. Brain imaging technologies, advances in Artificial Intelligence, and the apparent disrepute of many traditional conceptions of the soul are changing the way we understand consciousness. But is the “triumph” of scientific materialism warranted?
Socrates in Cyberspace examines the ontological status of the soul in the 21st century.
