Abstract and Keywords

This article outlines the ways in which Integral Theory, applying Integral Methodological Pluralism (IMP), can provide a successful approach to integrating the disciplines of science and religion. It introduces the Integral approach and the application of IMP. Then, the article draws on IMP to explain some of the important features of both Integral Science and Integral Religion. Finally, it identifies some key considerations for integrating science and religion. Integral Theory provides a comprehensive means of integrating the four dimension-perspectives of objectivity, interobjectivity, subjectivity, and intersubjectivity. It also includes the major methodological families in a way that avoids postulating the existence of pre-existing ontological structures of a Platonic, archetypal, Patanjali, or Yogachara-Buddhist variety.

Keywords: Integral Theory, IMP, Integral Science, Integral Religion, Yogachara-Buddhist
