A Chronological Inquiry of the World's Most Influential Seekers of Wisdom in the Fields of Theology, Philosophy, and Science
by Dean Chavooshian

Like many, I have given the origin and meaning of life a great deal of thought in an effort to live it fully --- with grace and intelligence. In the process, I discovered that philosophical/theological discussions on reality are empty without the consideration of scientific inquiry as they inform each other on the nature of human existence.

In The Pursuit of Wisdom, historic breakthroughs by eminent scientists abide side-by-side with theologians and philosophers who share an ambition to answer life’s most primordial questions. As the great Albert Einstein once said, “The situation can be expressed by an image: Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”

We can benefit immensely from the great minds chronicled in this book that have dramatically changed the world and helped man imagine himself in it -- leading to one's own self-discovery.


In Theology

  • Is the soul immortal? Is reincarnation possible?
  • Islam's holiest shrine in Mecca was built by the founding father of the Jewish nation.
  • How one man uprooted 1500 years of Roman Catholic domination with a simple document

In Philosophy

  • Is the world pre-determined with orderly harmony or governed by man's free will?
  • Is knowledge gained solely from experience or reasoning -- or is it innate?
  • How the self-awareness of existentialism allows one to live an authentic life.
  • How 9th century Muslim scholars contributed to the foundation of modern civilization.

In Science

  • What makes all physical matter stable? How does matter reproduce itself?
  • Isaac Newton described gravity's effect, but it was Einstein who showed how it originated
  • Did man evolve or was he created?
  • The search for a unifying theoretical basis of all the sciences.
