Expanding the Scope of Science

How it all started…

David Lorimer introduces the Galileo Commission Report

GALILEO COMMISSION REMIT

The world today is dominated by science and by its underlying assumptions, which are seldom explicitly articulated. The Galileo Commission’s remit is to open public discourse and to find ways to expand science so that it can accommodate and explore important human experiences and questions that science, in its present form, is unable to integrate.

Following widespread consultation with 90 advisers representing 30 universities worldwide, we have published the Galileo Commission Report, written by Prof  Dr Harald Walach and entitled Beyond a Materialist Worldview – Towards an Expanded Science.  The report has been widely endorsed as a groundbreaking document and we encourage you to read it for yourself and spread the word among your professional network.  Summaries  of the argument are available in a number of languages.

Spiritual Awakenings – Marjorie Wollacott & David Lorimer (Eds)

Scholars share the experience of their own spiritual awakening and journey, including encountering challenges to their credibility in academia, if they shared these experiences. Their comments about transformation in values, beliefs, and approaches toward life are very moving, expressing a deep inner wisdom and connection, not only with humanity, but with the earth and cosmos.

The Folly of Scientism – Austin L. Hughes

Of all the fads and foibles in the long history of human credulity, scientism in all its varied guises — from fanciful cosmology to evolutionary epistemology and ethics — seems among the more dangerous, both because it pretends to be something very different from what it really is and because it has been accorded widespread and uncritical adherence. Continued insistence on the universal competence of science will serve only to undermine the credibility of science as a whole. The ultimate outcome will be an increase of radical skepticism that questions the ability of science to address even the questions legitimately within its sphere of competence. One longs for a new Enlightenment to puncture the pretensions of this latest superstition.

Featuring Lorna Green – #13: Some Scenarios for What is Coming Down on Us

And so, the greatest hope of all: Ideas, it is all about ideas, the old ideas that have brought us to this crisis point in our relationship to the Earth and one another, the new ideas that will enable us to move into a new civilization based Love and Truth. And my conviction is that if we can know the truth about what is now happening on the planet, and its sources, we can know how to deal with it. The human race is resourceful. If we can honestly face the crisis we have created for both ourselves and the Earth, then we can find our way forward.
