Religion and the Natural Sciences: The Range of Engagement
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich College Publishers, Jan 1, 1993 - Religion - 422 pages
Appropriate for students at several levels of sophistication, this text takes an interdisciplinary approach to exploring science and religion. It may be used effectively with students who have no prior course work in philosophy and religious studies as well as by more advanced students. Networking sections integrate concepts and compare views on common issues. Emphasis is placed on contemporary material in the sciences, yet analysis is presented from both the traditional and contemporary perspectives in philosophy and religion. Parts are arranged according to specific natural sciences - physics, biology, and ecology - to assist readers in orienting themselves according to their interests.
