Today we understand science and religion as being two wholly separate pursuits. They are not only separate, they are often hostile to one other. Yet, each has a tremendous influence on the other, with mysticism getting wrapped up in quantum physics or with goddess worshipping religions cropping out of anthropological research into matriarchal, pre-patriarchal cultures. In this episode, Jessa sits down with writer & professor Kocku von Stuckrad. In his book, The Scientification of Religion, Stuckrad talks about the process of identity formation through strategies of distancing — Religion understands itself as being not science, not just as being religion, and vice versa. Together, they discuss this idea, the intermingling of religion and science, and the revival of astrology.
