Examining the relationship between perception and events, this highly significant volume contributes several important ideas to the "bridge" between modern science and perennial wisdom teachings. Part 1, 'The Reign of Relativity', explores the extent of relativity's domain and the implications of its principles for spiritual development. Part 2, 'What is Philosophy?', gets to the heart of Paul Brunton's teachings: how to actualise reliable knowledge and durable wholeness through fulfilling, combining, and balancing the practical, intellectual, and mystical elements of the human psyche. Part 3, 'Mentalism', examines the power of thought and celebrates a deeper level of each individual's own mind. It focuses on the fathomless untapped power within, with which we can improve our immediate selves and consequent circumstances.
The pioneering analysis of synchronicity was given by Jung, yet despite the concept's momentous significance in Jung's work, and despite the widespread dissemination of the term 'synchronicity' even within pop culture, synchronicity is often badly misconstrued and remains "perhaps the least understood of Jung's theories". Synchronicity, Science, and Soul-Making has already been hailed as the most important analysis of synchronicity since Jung himself.

This book argues that constructivism and realism, two prominent theories of scholarly inquiry in a variety of fields, both have their strengths and weaknesses as descriptive models of how research is conducted and written up and as normative models for improving inquiry. Drawing on the two theories' strengths while avoiding their weaknesses, the book proposes realist constructivism as a general epistemic model for one area of inquiry - cross-cultural studies, defined as studies involving scholars from one society or culture studying another. The model has a descriptive and a normative dimension. Descriptively, realist constructivism maintains that a scholarly study of another society does reveal and is constrained by the studied society's social reality while being thoroughly shaped by factors involving the scholar and his society, whereas normatively it urges that a cross-cultural study should reveal and be constrained by the studied society's relevant social reality while being thoroughly shaped by a host of factors involving the scholar and his society.
