In this brilliant exploration of an alternative to the dry, positivist understanding of science adopted by modern civilization today, Dr Necati Aydin takes us on a journey into the mind and vision of the influential scholar Bediuzzaman Said Nursi.
This book delivers a thorough analysis of the concept of the mana-i-harfi, which is a framework through which a transcendental dimension of reality is observed within physical phenomena. Readers are given the opportunity to explore what happens when they choose to see beyond the surface of scientific phenomena by adopting the mana-i-harfi, or indicative, approach.
Dr Aydin fills a gap in the literature by offering unique solutions to the problems of addressing the boundaries between science and spiritual meaning. He blends these insights into the argument that when what is observed in science is interlaced with meaning, one is led to adopt a more purposeful, character-laden life.
This book is a must read for anyone who wishes to witness how changing the lens through which science is explored will elevate what is observed and experienced from ordinary to miraculous.
