Alan Wallace and Laurence Freeman will explore and reflect upon science, contemplation and faith.
- How do we discover and uncover the mysteries of life and the world around us?
- Should we rely on religious belief, scientific evidence, philosophical speculation or something other?
- Is secular science the sole arbiter of reality, and is religious faith irrational and therefore unreliable?
