Abstract:

"Science as a Spiritual Practice is in three parts. First the author argues there are problems with materialism, and that self-transformation could lead individual scientists to more comprehensive ways of understanding reality. Second he shows how access to inner knowledge could be possible in some altered states of consciousness. Third comes an analysis of the philosophy of Franklin Wolff who claimed that the transcendent states of consciousness which occurred for him resulted from his mathematical approach to spirituality."--BOOK JACKET.
