"Darwin has given the theory of evolution— Fossilism. Vedanta has given subjective evolution. In Darwin’s theory of objective evolution, matter evolves consciousness. The object exists first, and by its development, life is coming, consciousness is coming— from stone. That is objective evolution. But an object is a relative term; without the subject, an object cannot stand. The subject is the primary substance. Whatever is to be felt is only an idea in the subjective ocean. " – Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaja
"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." – Albert Einstein
"Religion without philosophy is sentiment, or sometimes fanaticism, while philosophy without religion is mental speculation." – Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
"Thoughts without intuitions are empty, intuitions without concepts are blind." – Immanuel Kant
"The soul is always in a state of living —the properties of the soul are willing, feeling and thinking. The soul can move, and the jada, the material, cannot move. But even within matter, souls are living. Within a tree is living a soul, and this has also been proved by scientists such as Jagadish Bose. But this knowledge is not new; in the ancient Vedas we will find all knowledge given in a living way. The knowledge given by the Vedas is that behind everything is the living soul, and if we study the Vedas we will find this out." – Srila Bhakti Sundara Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaja
"When subject becomes the object of its own study then spiritual life begins." – Srila Bhaktisvarupa Damodara Goswami Maharaja, Ph.D.
"The study of the "knower" belongs to theology, as the knower corresponds to the soul, according to the subjective perspective of modern day understanding (produced by the Enlightenment). Of course, theology is not so shallow-minded to think that the knower is the infinitessimal soul. The particularity of the soul is grounded in that which is universal, sometimes referred to as Reason, and even more fundamentally in Spirit, and more specifically in God. Thus the category of the "knower" is placed within the wider field of the study of theology, rather than in the more narrow field of what is referred to as pneumatology." – Sripad Bhakti Madhava Puri Maharaja, Ph.D.
