Publisher's Summary

''With elegance and lucidity, Steve Taylor explains why spiritual science is the only hope for humanity.'' (Deepak Chopra, MD Chopra Foundation)

Is it possible that the biggest mysteries in the world can be solved not through science or spirituality alone, but through an approach that combines them both?

In this ground-breaking book, Steve Taylor offers a new vision of the world that is compatible with both modern science and ancient spiritual teachings. Spiritual Science reveals Taylor's ''panspiritist'' view of reality, one that transcends both conventional science and religion, and answers many of the riddles that neither can fully explain.

The standard model of science has had limited success in explaining many phenomena, including human consciousness, the connection between the mind and the body, altruism and ''anomalous'' phenomena such as near-death experiences, psi phenomena and spiritual experiences, to name just a few. But from a ''panspiritist'' perspective - which sees spirit or consciousness as a fundamental essence of reality - it is possible to make sense of all these things.

Drawing on the insights of philosophers, physicists, mystics, as well as spiritual traditions and indigenous cultures, Steve Taylor makes a compelling case for a spiritual vision of reality. He presents a worldview that is compatible with both modern science and ancient spiritual teachings - a vision of a sacred and interconnected world, and of a meaningful and purposeful human life.

Arguments of a spiritualistic world view were good

All of the arguments for adopting a spiritualistic over materialistic world view in explaining the nature of our world were well done. I took a star off an otherwise 5 star book because the author, as a member of academia, clearly leans a little left and attempted to make the assertion that capitalism is somehow responsible for the materialistic/atheistic world view, which is absurd, in my opinion. The finger should be pointed directly at his colleagues in academia that have pushed spiritualism out of the mainstream in their unending quest of materialism and anti- capitalism.

Open our minds

This is a great mix of science and spirit. It is inspirational to see/hear that science is helping us to reconnect with spirit and move away from materialism.
The writer is very knowledgeable on the subject and the performer reads as if they also know the knowledge.
I highly recommend this book.

Interesting and well read.

Well read and presented which made this easy to follow. Having read several Steve Taylor books I was expecting great things and although good this fell a little short. Perhaps this was due to being an audio version. Great subject matter as always from Steve and I would still highly recommend this book, definitely a good starting book for anyone new to his material.

Challenges our materialistic worldview

Steve Taylor offers us a different perspective to view our self and the world. He challenges the hidden biases of our materialistic worldview and offers a new way of seeing through the eyes of both spirit and science.
