Abstract: The announcement of the Symposium whose proceedings you now hold in your hands said: Modern science, mathematics and technology have during the last three centuries, transformed our understanding of life, nature and the universe, and provided mankind with unprecedented power to control its environment - for good or ill. This extraordinary development, built on older scientific and technological traditions in both East and West, has been so spectacularly successful that it has raised a fundamental question: Is there anything beyond Science?. For, even as scientific knowledge is increasingly translated into power over the physical world, the very practitioners of the science have often been drawn on a quest beyond it - and that quest has often led the seeker to philosophy, religion, spirituality, humanism and other similar paths to an integrative view of life and the universe. If there is something beyond science, what is it - for each of us, and for mankind as a whole?
