Conquering Mental Castles on Mercatornet

Recently I wrote an article on Mercatornet, about the philosopher Leonardo Polo. In it, I focused on his methodological proposition of "detecting the mental boundary so that we can go beyond it".

In my view, the issue Polo points to is a an important interpretative key for understanding what often goes wrong in the science - religion media debate. Both sides come to the table with their frame of mind, and opening up to the valid points the other makes is sometimes quite difficult. But just this is the challenge.
