Varieties of Scientific Experience

Carl Sagan was a scientist who helped us understand the immense beauty of the universe, and enrich our understanding of science. Through his books, TV programs, and public appearances he instilled wonder as an underlying force of science. Now, ten years after his death, a book based on lectures he gave in Glasgow in the 1980’s was published. The book, The Varieties of Scientific Experience: A Personal View of the Search for God, edited by Ann Druyan explores the boundaries between science and religion.

In the New York Science Times, Dennis Overbye has written a review of the book that might interest you.
