Item description for Science Religion & Culture In The Jesuit Tradition: Perspectives from East Asia (Science & Theology) (ATF Science & Theology) by Jose Mario Francisco & Roman Miguel De Jesus...

This collection is set within the horizon of Jesuit mission in East Asia which is best examplified by the great Mateo Ricci whose work centuries ago anticipated in so many ways the dialogue between religion, science and culture today. This horizon, though implicit in the following essays, serves as the basic perspective of the authors many of whom are in some way connected to the Jesuit tradition either as members of the Society of Jesus or as graduates and lecturers of Jesuit educational institutions in East Asia. Despite the presence of of scientfic acivity in some academic or research institutions and the dominant influence of Christian religious practice, the science-and-religion problematic has been, for the most part, untreated in the Philippine contect. Jose Mario Francisco SJ, is head of the Jesuit School of Theology in Manila, Philippines.

Reviews - What do customers think about Science Religion & Culture In The Jesuit Tradition: Perspectives from East Asia (Science & Theology) (ATF Science & Theology)?

Is invaluable for its precepts that apply far beyond the Philippines, indeed to the world as a whole.  Jul 9, 2007
Edited by Jose Mario Francisco SJ (associate professor, Loyola School of Theology) and philosopher Roman Miguel de Jesus, Science and Religion... and Culture in the Jesuit Tradition: Perspectives from East Asia is an anthology of essays by learned authors in the context of a Jesuit mission in the Philippines. Individual essays are bound by the common theme of finding the proper balance between science and religion, from "Genetically Modified Crops: An Assessment from a Christian Ethical Perspective" to "A Critique of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines Statement on the Environment" and much more. The scholarly essays frequently offer helpful suggestions and steps Christians can take, both individually and collectively. "...every religion has similar potential, based on different sets of belief. It is the religious ethicist's task to unlock that potential as the human family faces the brave new world of bio-technology. Theology, religious ethics and people of faith are not the opponents of science. They are both its humanisers and its potential beneficiaries." In today's era of cutting-edge technological advances, Science and Religion... is invaluable for its precepts that apply far beyond the Philippines, indeed to the world as a whole.
