Bringing the Restoration to the Academic World: Clinical Psychology as a Test Case

I believe in bringing the Restoration to the academic world by infusing scholarly work with values, revelation, and inspired methods of inquiry that derive from the gospel. If this can be done rigorously and successfully, the results could be revolutionary. To take the step from terrestrial to celestial scholarship requires an integration of the spiritual and the empirical, with the spiritual providing the basic frame of reference and much of the impetus for our rational and empirical efforts. In keeping with Church teachings, I believe that the extraordinary insights of scientists, scholars, and artists come by revelation in the context of disciplined and educated searching.
