any valid epistemology (way of acquiring knowledge) is welcome. In practice, transpersonal researchers have encouraged an eclectic, interdisciplinary, integrative approach that makes appropriate use of all the so-called ‘three eyes of knowledge’: the sensory, introspective-rational, and contemplative. … To date, the transpersonal disciplines stand alone in adopting an eclectic epistemology that seeks to include science, philosophy, instrospection, and contemplation and to integrate them in a comprehensive investigation adequate to the many dimensions of human experience and human nature.”
