Alan Wallace: The Intersubjective Worlds of Science and Religion

8/6/2001; 112 minutes

Dr. Alan Wallace discusses the nature of consciousness and his belief that a "truth-claim" is tested, not in reference to some purely objective realm of existence, independent of all modes of inquiry, but in reference to multiple modes of perceptual and conceptual knowledge. With this criterion of truth, both scientific and religious modes of knowledge are seen to be inextricably embedded in human experience. Moreover, following this model, human consciousness - so long emitted from the scientific worldview - is seen to play a central role in both the natural world of science as well as the world of religious truths.
