Science, Belief, Intuition discovers new knowledge. Science falsifies erroneous explanations to generate evidence-based knowing. Intuition is the still-small voice verifying beliefs to create a spiritual knowing. This memoir describes the interface of science and spirituality.

Excerpt from Science, Belief, Intuition.

"Reflection on my life as a Physician revealed inclinations to spirituality and science. Spirituality is my awareness of a relationship with a personal higher power characterized by her loving acceptance and affirmation, and by my experiences of awe, wonder, delight and gratitude in our communication and in my interactions with all of creation. Science is the evidence-based generation of knowledge – the discipline that channeled my curiosity about how the world works. Together, science and spirituality were 2 lenses though which I came to know how the world operates."

About the Author

Lawrence Wood was born and educated in Canada and worked for seven years in Winnipeg before moving to Chicago as Professor of Medicine and founding chief of the Section of Pulmonary and Critical Care at the University of Chicago in 1982. He published extensively about cardiopulmonary disturbances in the critically ill and coauthored the highly regarded textbook, The Principles of Critical Care. A master educator, Dr. Wood consistently won teaching awards at the University of Chicago, and received three National Teaching Awards, including the Humanism in Medicine Award for his modeling and teaching empathic listening and grief counseling; two awards for outstanding teaching are named in his honor. Science and spirituality provide two complementary world views for Dr. Wood’s life and career; his memoir invites listening for the still small voice or intuition to verify one’s beliefs and create a spiritual source of knowing akin to the scientific method. He is retired and lives with his wife, Elaine, near their five adult children in British Columbia.
