Publisher Comments:

Modern scientific and technological marvels seem to be clear evidence of human "progress." Yet many are now voicing second thoughts about this widely accepted notion. As we enter into the 21st century, many scientists are again raising questions concerning the origin of man and the nature of the cosmos. For some, it is the ecological, social and human crises of our time that have led to this re-examination. For many scientists, the reason lies in the nature of the discoveries themselves. Recently, questions of how we know what we know--or what constitutes knowledge--have entered more and more into the realm of science.

This book shows why this convergence and re-examination is taking place, going beyond practical problems and conjecture to the very root of the issue: the distinction between the quantifiable "how" of existence and the qualitative perception of the "why" of existence. The essays in this collection, written by some of the most important scholars, philosophers, and scientists of our time, share a consensus that the ground of knowledge is to be found in traditional wisdom.

Readers searching for an alternative to the conventional ideas surrounding modern scientific belief will find in this volume a collection of essays which offer penetrating answers to some of the most important questions of the day.
