    When I was in grad school, a teacher told our workshop that if a published novel is 300 pages, the writer had to generate 1,200 along the way. I... Continue »

Green Space, Green Time: The Way of Science

Green Space, Green Time: The Way of Science Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a provocative book that is sure to be controversial, Connie Barlow puts forth a compelling case for breaching the barrier between science and religion-in effect, for a reunification of knowledge and meaning. Evolutionary biology, rendered as an Epic of Evolution, provides a powerful origin story appropriate for our times. Conservation biology, ecology, and Gaia theory all reveal how we fit in with the natural world; Barlow argues that they can not only inform our ethics but also expand our sense of meaning. In dozens of unusually candid conversations with leading scientists and philosophers, she presents an emerging view of a new meaning for science in our lives-and why this new meaning is crucial for our times. "Green Space, Green Time could well mark a turning point in humanity's troubled relationship with nature." -John Davis Editor, Wild Earth Magazine

Synopsis:

""Green Space, Green Time", much-needed tour de force, once and for all breaks through the illusion that science and the spirit are exclusive and separate domains".--"Earthlight" magazine. ""Green Space, Green Time" could well mark a turning point in humanity's troubled relationship with nature".--"Wild Earth" magazine.

Synopsis:

Over the last few centuries, science has usurped domains of knowledge that were once the province of religion. At the same time, however, both science and religion have enforced strict boundaries throughout. Science can describe the world to us, but it cannot tell us about meaning or values. This is a compelling case for breaching this barrier - in effect, for a reunification of science and religion.
