Contemporary Consciousness: Science vs Religion

Over the past two months, as I’ve been looking into and learning more about philosophy of the mind and its theories on consciousness, I couldn’t help but wonder how, or if, spiritual discussions of consciousness fit in.

I feel that a look into how this particular philosophy is being discussed is incomplete without at least addressing religion, since these big questions feature in ideologies outside science and many religions answer the hows and whys of existence without the headache that scientists and philosophers have been facing in their studies.

To figure what current discourse looks like in both fields, I’ve compiled a Spotify story that gives an idea of the relationship between science/philosophy and religion, and how that effects our journey to satisfying answers.
