In the spirit of open inquiry and the search after truth this course will address the question: Is there scientific proof of the soul? The question will be answered through an exploration of the evidence from different points of view: scientific, medical, metaphysical, philosophical, religious, historical, and personal.
The question of the soul is best approached as a Nancy Drew mystery. Using the scientific method and adaptive learning methodologies, we propose the question, explore the basics, and then follow the evidence, direct (scientific and medical) and indirect (philosophical and religious).
The assumptions and biases uncovered, and the methods and conclusions arrived at jointly by the participants will make for lively discussions during the course.
