Three quick links, which taken together provide a good conversation between modernist & traditional views of life:
1. John Taylor Gatto, Education & The Western Spiritual Tradition
2. Richard Feynman, The Relation of Science and Religion
3. Joseph Campbell, The Impact of Science on Myth (big file, download as zip)
and then a fourth, a beautiful, transcendant story by JRR Tolkien, Leaf By Niggle
Not particularly relevant, but here is a collection of three quite old Prem Panicker essays which I have always really liked: The Call Of Your Roots, My Father's Son and Happily Ever After!.
