HUSTON SMITH:
Cleansing the Doors of Perception

TRT:60 MIN. A wonderful evening at Green Apple Book Store. Full house in rapt attention to Huston Smith describing the why and wherefore of his latest book “Cleansing the Doors of Perception.” Dr. Smith was well lit, funny, had suffient amount of time to present other participants in the book’s publishing process, tell stories about his experiences with Aldous Huxley and generally philosophically support a point of view rarely expressed. A very important book and a very important tape.

HUSTON SMITH:
Evolution: Why Can’t We Handle This Issue Sensibly?

Huston Smith is Professor of Religion and Philosophy, Emeritus, Syracuse University. He has also taught at MIT, Washington University and University of California. He points out that during the week, our schools teach that human beings are organisms who have developed increasingly ingenious ways of interacting with their environments. On weekends most churches and synagogues preach that we have immortal souls and are created in the image of God. This borders on cultural schizophrenia. We still haven’t thought this issue through. Hard scientific evidence must be accepted, but religious beliefs deserve a hearing as well. Can we find a middle way that avoids both extremes? TRT 1 hour 25 minutes.
