The success of modern science in the last few centuries can hardly be questioned; in a relatively short span of time modern science has built up a body of knowledge that is self-consistent, verifiable and often realizable as technology products. There exist, however, certain topics that may forever remain outside the realms of current scientific exploration, because of the very nature of the structure and approach of modern science. It is expected that interfacing of certain traditional knowledge with modern science would provide knowledge beyond the current scope of modern science. However, careful interpretation and certain methodological reorientation appear necessary.
As a part of its quest for new knowledge pathways, CSIR-NISTADS is trying to identify resource persons for its proposed initiative to explore traditional knowledge and metaphysics. The emphasis is on exploratory knowledge; religious or religio-political issues are NOT included. This is a highly multidisciplinary area and a major challenge is to identify resource person with expertise/interest in the interface areas between science, metaphysics and other traditional knowledge systems. CSIR-NISTADS is trying to create a database of resource persons (scientists, scholars, thought leaders) in various areas.
The resource persons would be included in our mailing list and shall be contacted for possible participation in specific related activities like Newsletters, Workshops and Conclaves. willingness to be listed as a potential resource person
