La fuga de dios

las ciencias y otras narraciones

Arnau, Juan (1968- )

God's Flight is a bold, clear and incisive book. A search for points of contact between scientific thought and the wisdom traditions of Antiquity. Arnau brilliantly examines some of the dogmas of science in an entertaining and convincing way, questioning certain assumptions of official science and opening paths towards a new science in which the universe is not a machine made up of dead matter, evolution a process blind and mechanical, or consciousness a mere physical activity of the brain. Showing, in short, that without these dogmas science would be freer and more creative. Why do science and spirit seem not to understand each other? What problems does a world dominated by technology pose? Is it possible to abandon the dehumanized ways of life that globalization leads to? Modern science fears the immaterial, but this was not always the case. The hegemony of Science in capital letter, justified in an all-terrain and universal scientific method, is false. This book aims to redirect science in the abstract to the network in which scientific practices are produced, where countless extra-scientific factors are at stake, from personal ambition to financial interests or geopolitical domination. With this he seeks the impossible: the harmonious coexistence between different modes of truth. A chimerical endeavor, but in philosophy, as is known, failure is not losing.
