Publisher's Summary

Science and religion have always been considered mutually exclusive concepts, but are they really? Philosopher Ken Wilber shows how we might begin to think about science and religion in ways that allow for their reconciliation, on terms acceptable to both camps. Science is one of the most profound methods humans have devised for devining truth, and religion focuses on discerning meaning. Wilber shows that not only is science compatible with the world's religions, it is indeed necessary to unite the two. 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.


What the Critics Say

"The author demonstrates a remarkable ability to examine and summarize disparate theories and to arrive at stimulating conclusions. The book is impeccably read by Denis deBoisblanc, and the production quality is of the highest order." (AudioFile)

Toward Integrity in Science and Religion

Ken Wilber's Sense and Soul surpasses any other preseentation on the dialogue between science and spirituality. It explains in clear language what has lead to the impasse between these essential elements of culture and how a reapproachment can be made which honors the methods and practices of both. Wilber's unique contribution lies in his thorough knowledge of the Perennial tradition of deep faith and in his encyclopedic knowledge of the philsophy of science.

Maybe a better read than listened to

I think this book, for some at least, would better to read, rather than having it read to them. It is rather dense and you must keep your mind well focused to follow it. Let your mind drift off to contemplate a thought it has provoked, and by the time you re-focus your attention the Audible reader may well have moved on to new territoty.
