Religion and Science

Historical and Contemporary Issues
  • By Ian Barbour
$21.99
Product Description

Religion and Science is the definitive contemporary discussion of the many issues surrounding our understanding of God and religious truth in this scientific age. Ian Barbour, winner of the 1999 Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion for his pioneering role in establishing the study of religion and science, explores many occasions where the relationship between the two was especially antagonistic. From physics in the sixteenth century to biology in the Victorian Era, Religion and Science is a fascinating exploration of two conflicting, yet at times interdependent schools of thought.

Ian Barbour is Professor Emeritus of Physics and Religion at Carleton College, Northfield, Minn. He was named the winner of 1999 Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion for his pioneering role in establishing the study of religion and science. He donated the $1.42 million prize to the Berkeley Center for the Study of Theology and Science and to Carleton College. He is the author of many books, including Religion and Science, Ethics in an Age of Technology, and Religion in an Age of Science.

" M]agisterial in scope, balanced in perspective, rich in detail, and full of intellectual passion. For a generation to come, anyone setting out to explore the subtle relationships between science, religion, ethics, and technology will begin with Barbour as the guide."-- Religious Studies Review
