Psychological Healing
in the Catholic Mystic Tradition

Questions and Answers

You’re a psychologist and ostensibly trained in modern science, yet in some places on this website you speak disparagingly about science. What’s wrong with science?

 
Let’s just say that I don’t disparage science but that I speak realistically about it.

For the record, yes, I have been trained in science; I was a science major in high school and entered college as a math and physics major. I eventually changed my major to literature. From there I earned three master’s degrees, one in Religious Studies, one in Education, and one in Clinical Psychology. My Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology was heavily based in scientific research. My Postdoctoral Fellowship in Health Psychology was based in science. And my scientific publications were based in science.

My life has a mixture of science, art, and theology. What has it taught me? Well, it has taught me that science is trapped within the box of sin and, despite its most powerful instruments, science cannot see outside the box of a fallen world. That, simply put, is the realistic limitation of science.
