Description
Against the backdrop of the pervasive scientism of our time, this book is a daring attempt to offer an intellectual critique of the foundations of modern science by rigorously examining the limitations of rational thought and empirical investigation. Unique of its kind, it situates science in the context of the perennial wisdom of the world’s religions, which for millennia have provided keys to true knowledge.

Details - “Philosophy of Science in the Light of the Perennial Wisdom”

Backed by its technological achievements, modern science appears as the de facto source of truth to the majority of our contemporaries. Its sole reliance on reason and empirical data gives it an air of objectivity that has conferred upon it an almost unquestioning authority. Against the backdrop of this pervasive scientism, Philosophy of Science in the Light of the Perennial Wisdom is a daring attempt to offer an intellectual critique of modern science in its foundation by rigorously examining the intrinsic limitations of rational thought and empirical investigation. Unique of its kind, this book offers a refreshing look at the traditional doctrines of epistemology and metaphysics as an antidote to the subjective as well as objective errors of modern science, which is thus revealed as no more than a belief system that falls radically short of offering a full knowledge of reality; this, in contrast to the perennial wisdom of the world’s great religions that for millennia have offered humankind not only keys to true knowledge, but also the means of attaining it, which precisely constitutes man’s reason for being.
