Thinking Beyond the Brain: A Wider Science of Consciousness

lorimer3

Consciousness is the hot topic in scientific circles? Its precise nature holding huge implications for the future of science as a viable discipline. And with so many recent advances in brain studies, questions of mind and consciousness have become critically important for both theorists and hard scientists. These latest contributions to the debate, selected from the annual “Beyond the Brain” conferences, show that it is time for radical rethinking of our theories and methods in investigating phenomena of the human mind. A collection of presentations by David Lorimer.

The Spirit of Science: From Experiment to Experience

lorimer

The technical successes of modern science have obscured a deeper understanding of its place in human knowledge and in our value systems. For many, science belongs in a separate “compartment” from normal human experience, confined to the word of the laboratory. This can give rise to a dark, impersonal and inhuman image of science.In this collection, scientists and thinkers from a range of disciplines examine the relationship of scientific knowledge and practice to the wider dimension of human life and awareness. For some this appears as a dialogue between science and spirituality, for others an investigation into consciousness and the intelligent heart of the cosmos. Whether in physics, cosmology of biology, these essays explore the very nature of knowledge itself and the continuing role of human creativity, emphasizing the need for crossing disciplinary boundaries in our search for understanding.The contributions are based on papers given over 20 years at the annual “Mystics and Scientists” conferences in England.

Science, Consciousness and Ultimate Reality

science

This interdisciplinary volume arises out of a series of university events arranged by the Scientific and Medical Network from 2001-3. The Science, Consciousness and Ultimate Reality project was set up with the support of the John Templeton Foundation in order to examine critical issues at the interface between science, religion and the relatively new field of ‘consciousness studies’. The results give a variety of fascinating perspectives on this emerging area. Contributors, representing the fields of physics, neuroscience, psychology, theology and philosophy, include Denis Alexander, Bernard Carr, Chris Clarke, Guy Claxton, Peter Fenwick, David Fontana, John Habgood, Mary Midgley, Ravi Ravindra, Alan Torrance, and Keith Ward.
