Prof Rolf Sattler – Science and Beyond: Toward Greater Sanity through Science, Philosophy, Art, and Spirituality


What are the consequences of widespread misconceptions about science?

 

 

Science, coupled with technology, has become the dominant force in our society. Thus, it affects our lives and society in many ways. Yet, misconceptions about science are widespread in governments, the general public, and even among many scientists. My book Science and Beyond explores these misconceptions that may have grave and even disastrous consequences for individuals and society as was also evident during the COVID-19 pandemic, where they led to much unnecessary suffering, sickness, and death.

The misconceptions also obscure the limitations of science. Not seeing these limitations prevents us from seeing and going beyond them, which leads to a crippled life and an impoverished society. But reaching beyond the limitations of science, as outlined in this book, can open the doors to a more fulfilled, saner, healthier, happier, and more peaceful life and society.
