John Paul Quester

Joined 2 years ago from North America. Last activity 2 weeks ago.




Now partially retired, I have taught and carried out research in a field of experimental  psychology at a major university for many years; I was also a registered psychologist. My scientific training was preceded by advanced studies in philosophy, especially the philosophy of science.

Though I regard science as the best way to acquire information  about the world, I object to the temptation to elbow out, in its name, other forms of knowledge and experience. Indeed, I find that the clash between various ways of knowing is  a crucible in which fresh insights about the nature of ultimate reality may arise. This attitude  is reflected in some of my blogs. 

I also propose to write about psychological development in the second half of life, a long standing professional interest of mine... and about anything else that captures my attention, and hopefully that of some readers as well.
