Reflections on the Reunion of Science and Spirituality, Dave Pruett

Dave Pruett reflects on the reunion of science and spirituality which he views as the third Copernican revolution in science.

Dave Pruett, a former NASA researcher, is an award-winning computational scientist and emeritus professor of mathematics at James Madison University (JMU). He is also a contemplative, a student of mysticism, and an admirer of Native American spirituality, particularly in regards to reverence for the Earth. His professional and personal interests merged in late career in two meaningful endeavors: the development of From Black Elk to Black Holes: Shaping a Myth for a New Millennium, an acclaimed honors course at JMU and the recent publication of Reason and Wonder: A Copernican Revolution in Science and Spirit (Praeger, 2012). Twelve years in gestation, Reason and Wonder synthesizes modern scientific insights with ancient wisdom to ‘re-enchant the universe’. ‘A love letter to the cosmos’, Reason and Wonder has received a number of sterling reviews, recently garnering an American Library Association CHOICE Award.
