Title: Science, religion, and the human experience
Language of title: English
Editor: Jim Proctor

Description: From 2001 to 2003, the University of California, Santa Barbara hosted several prominent scholars, philosophers, and scientists in a series of lectures devoted to the relation between science, religion, and human experience. The lectures covered evolution, cosmology, health and spirituality, empathy and its relation to subjectivity, mysticism, the nature of experience, the study of consciousness, meditation, and the future of science and religion. Each lecture was accompanied by a panel discussion consisting of peers from a variety of disciplines. The website features an online video of each lecture and panel discussion, as well the lecture text, and transcription of the panel proceedings. Pictures and biographies of each lecturer are also included. Religious perspectives come from Buddhist, Christian, and Jewish traditions. (Zach Rowinski 2004-05-10)
