The world faces a crisis of meaning. The old stories - whether the exclusive claims of rival religions or the grand schemes of perennial philosophy - seem bankrupt to many. The editorial stance of this book is that mysticism and science offer a way forward here, but only if they abandon the idol of a single logical synthesis and acknowledge the diversity of different ways of knowing. The contributors, from disciplines as diverse as music, psychology, mathematics and religion, build a vision that honours diversity while pointing to an implicit unity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This great collection of essays, some academic, some folksy, describes our knowing in a dozen different ways." -- Marian Van Eyk McCain * Resurgence *
"Ways of Knowing exposes readers to the fascinating interplay between mysticism and science around the world. The essays argue for a reasonable approach to knowledge that respects epistemological diversity without pushing for an easy synthesis." * Science and Theology News *
"An important contribution to the continuing cultural debate about the validity of different ways of knowing and, more specifically, a challenge to the prevailing scientism which assumes that only empirical methods currently sanctioned by science are legitmate." -- David Lorimer * Network Review *
"A stimulating collection of essays by twelve very different thinkers." -- Pat Pinsent * Catholic Women's Network *
