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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Susan | 9/6/2013

    " This book was nothing but Wilber's mental masturbation. There is nothing I hate more than a self-righteous writer that never has a point, or an end, and just floats around in their own juices. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brainwise | 2/17/2013

    " This is an excellent book, one that will require a re-read for clarity. However, I must point out that the audible format has a number of problems which I will detail later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chad | 11/30/2012

    " This book takes a pretty broad definition on what religion is. Most westerners won't agree with the religion aspects of this book. Very good historical philosophy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake | 11/24/2012

    " Ken Wilber is an incredible intellectual and author. He is a great source for those of us who enjoy exploring the crossroads between philosophy, science, and spirituality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven Monrad | 9/9/2012

    " Concise history of philosophy as regards his topic, very detailed in organization and loves new terminology to explain his reasoning. Reasonably persuasive and not too difficult. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vera | 7/27/2012

    " Excellent discussion of changing views of life. How can science and religion get together? The historical background he gives was very enlightening. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kifflie | 5/22/2012

    " This is a great introduction to Ken Wilber's work. He is a great "marriage counselor" for science and religion. If you're struggling to reconcile the two, start here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 8/15/2011

    " A good review of Wilber if its been a while. I'd say a little droll for an introduction, though. A good introduction to post-modernism, scientism, and the great chain of being. Its also short for KW, which is another plus. "

    " stimulated a lot of discussion in our uu book group. wilber is smart and well read. his attempt to unite religion and science is doomed though, because he wants each to back off on its core believes. a lit of irritating new age language was annoying. "
