Accessories such as CD, codes, toys, may not be included. Few would question the fact that, originally, sensory experience provided a firm basis for empirical natural science. Yet contemporary science has reduced the world to particles and forces that lie well beyond the reach of our human senses. The extraordinary-and alienating-fact is that human experience no longer has a place within our scientific worldview. The authors of this book, an updated edition of Matter and Mind, have begun to unravel this paradox. They show that the concepts of modern physics such as mass, force, or velocity are deeply rooted in the experience of specific senses. Each of our senses is a gateway into a different aspect of the world. This insight throws a new light on the dilemmas of contemporary science, such as the wave-particle duality in quantum mechanics. By recognizing the essential role of sense perception in scientific knowledge, this highly readable book lays the foundations for a science that, while maintaining its rigorous methodology, can begin to incorporate the fullness of human experience into its domain. Highly recommended for anyone looking a more cognitive and human approach to science.
