The first in a series of essays contributed by experts in their fields who reflect the philosophy of, and the discussions held at, the Pari Center for New Learning. While the essays have been divided into the areas of Science and Religion, Society, and the Arts, they form a unified volume since each one enriches and informs the others.
Topics include the role of belief in the lives of scientists, and the connections and proper boundaries between science and faith; roads to peace; an end to the institution of war; the need for sustainable societies; the nature of the creative act in literature and art; and the experiences of the artist and writer at work and complementarity between Western Science and Native America.
