Item description for Religion and Science in the Context of Chinese Culture (ATF Science and Theology Series) (ATF Science and Theology Series) by Chan , Tak-Kwong , Tsai , Yi-Jia & Frank Budenholzer...
Religion and science in the context of Chinese culture is indeed a complex and multi-faceted dialogue, The approaches to the dialogue of each of the main religions traditions - Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, the folk traditions and Taoism - are different in each tradition. Thus this volume actually represents a two-dimensional dialogue. There is the dialogue between science and religion to each of the traditions and there is the second dimension of inter-religious dialogue. Given this complexity it is not surprising that the points of contact among the authors are relatively few. While this is on the one hand regrettable, it is also hoped that having this laid out the dimensions of the dialogue, these papers can set the stage for future dialogue along both axes, and live and work in Chinese cultural settings. The book covers a variety of topics including traditional Chinese philosophy and natural knowledge; the modern Chinese academic community and the relationship between science and religion; folk medicine in Chinese culture; and environmental concerns. Contributors include: Ted Peters, Vincent Shen, Michael T. Seigel, Lai, Pen-Chu, Zhuo Xinping, Cheng, Chih0Ming, Fu, Pei-Jung, Frank Budenholzer, and Leo Leeb.
