EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Aired 07/01/08

Stuart Kauffman is the Director of the Institute for Biocomplexity and Informatics at the University of Calgary and Fellow of the Santa Fe Institute.

His newest book: REINVENTING THE SACRED:
A NEW VIEW OF SCIENCE, REASON, AND RELIGION

With economic and communications globalization, some form of a global civilization is beginning to emerge. Just as we confront the challenges of global warming and peak oil, and the likelihood of growing hunger and resource wars, our diverse cultures are being crushed together.

One response is a retreat into fundamentalisms, often religious, often hostile. Clearly there's an urgent need for new thinking. STUART KAUFFMAN says that's why he wrote Reinventing the Sacred.

Rooted in hard science, the book - and it's passionate author -- aims for nothing less than a revolution in how we see the world, reality, God, and our role in it all.

I think he's onto something.
