Editorial Reviews

Review

“...this collection explores phenomena at the crossroads of science and religion, such as the nonlocal mind, conscious evolution, and quantum consciousness, and offers strategies to promote the fusion of science and spirituality and develop a planetary consciousness.” (Branches of Light, October 2012)

From the Back Cover

SPIRITUALITY / NEW SCIENCE

Edited by Nobel Prize-nominee Ervin Laszlo and WorldShift International cofounder Kingsley L. Dennis, this volume brings together 28 leading scientists and spiritual thinkers for a game-changing conversation on bridging the gap between science and religion. With contributions by Michael Beckwith, Deepak Chopra, Larry Dossey, Amit Goswami, Stanislav Grof, Jean Houston, Barbara Marx Hubbard, José Argüelles, Peter Russell, and many other prominent visionaries, this collection explores phenomena at the crossroads of science and religion--such as the nonlocal mind, conscious evolution, and quantum consciousness--and offers strategies to promote the fusion of science and spirituality in order to develop a multiperson planetary consciousness.

This book reveals higher consciousness as the bridge between science and spirit, passionate curiosity as the common ground among scientists and seekers, and the urgent need for an alliance between science and the great traditions of spiritual wisdom to move our worldview forward to meet today’s global challenges.

ERVIN LASZLO is editor of the international periodical World Futures: The Journal of General Evolution and chancellor of Giordano Bruno GlobalShift University. The founder and president of the Club of Budapest and the author of 89 books, he lives in Pisa, Italy. KINGSLEY L. DENNIS, Ph.D., is a sociologist, writer, and a cofounder of WorldShift International. The author of several books, including New Consciousness for a New World, he spends his time between Andalusia, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

"This is important stuff. You need to know it."

I was deeply moved by this wonderful book. Men and women whose work I have studied for many years and others whose work is new to me have proven that there is a common denominator to the complex fractions of science and spirituality. There is, at the core of both modes of thought, a desire to find answers to the oldest human questions: "Who am I?" "What am I doing here?" "What is consciousness?" "Is the universe alive?"

Laszlo and Dennis have assembled an incredible collection of essays by some of the world's best-known luminaries in science and spirituality. It's a veritable "Who's who?" of gifted individuals who talk very openly about the needed and apparently inevitable marriage of these two heretofore opposed modes of worldview. The focus of these essays is a long-avoided attempt at bridge-building between the two camps. Some of the contributions point out that science has been finding out, through its empirical efforts, that what some of the oldest mystical/spiritual traditions have been teaching for centuries is literally provable. The bridge needed to span the current gap is literally becoming shorter by the day. Mystics and scientists are beginning to look at one another in a new light. I knew I was living in an amazing period of history. This is one more proof of it.

I won't spoil the read by telling you what all these experts in their fields have said. I'll leave that for you to discover. What I will say is, if you're looking for more evidence to support the need for and the effort to foster a new paradigm or worldview, this will add much fuel to the fire. I am personally now more motivated to share these insights as broadly as I can.

The editors offer their opinions, too.

I found this book to be most insightful the book has many different authors philosophers scientist theologians weighing in on different things the world is experiencing today and likely will experience in the future and a case is presented where by we can come out on the top of the pile I found these views practical useful and needful through all ages to me this book is a timing work that should be shared and discussed and even enhanced upon for improvements in daily living thanks to everyone who added to this book.

Format: Paperback
There are 29 essays in this book. 7 of them -- that's less than 1/4 -- are by women. While a few of the essays are good, a number are poorly thought-out and/or poorly written. Thankfully, I got it from the library -- I could not, in good conscience, spend money on a book that has such a low percentage of essays by women authors, especially in an area where we are particularly active.
