Introduction

WithW. Mark Richardson

Scientists are accustomed to experimentation, but this book is the result of a very unusual experiment indeed. This volume presents leading figures in the sciences, widely published in their respective fields, who now venture to write about the interdisciplinary ground between their science and matters that are spiritual. The philosopher and theologian, Paul Tillich, named this the dimension of “ultimate concern”: the source of meaning that structures and interprets all aspects of one’s experience.
