Uneasy Alliances: Faith & Health

8/4/2003; 89 minutes

We live in a world in which medical researchers design double-blind trials of prayer, ministers talk about the brain and the immune system from the pulpit, monks meditate inside brain imaging machines, and studies of "the placebo effect" and "positive attitude" frame discussions about the "science" of "miracle" healings. Explore how this strange world came to be and what might develop when science and religion form constructive alliances in the service of human experience. (#7658)
