Title: Exploring actuality through experiment and experience (print)
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Piet Hut, 1952-

Description: A comparison is presented of three approaches to an understanding of `what is actual': modern science, Husserlian phenomenology, and Tibetan Buddhist Dzog Chen. In each approach, experiment is the central touch stone, while the theoretical `foundations' are dynamically changing. The roles that consciousness plays in each of the three approaches are contrasted, in a comparative analysis that provides a fresh look at the question of the possibility of a scientific study of consciousness.
